My wife Vickie and I were shocked when I was diagnosed with IPF in April 2012, especially when we learned about the progressive, unknown nature of the disease and that my only real treatment would be a lung transplant. Since then, my condition has followed it’s course and definitely worsened. I’m now officially on the transplant wait list and can be called at any time for the operation. I’m also on disability and am no longer working.

As you can imagine this has been a life altering experience and promises to continue to affect our lives significantly. We’re surrounded by loving, caring family and friends that are on our journey together with us. We’re not going to let IPF stop our lives and bring us down.

We became involved with the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation through friends in our local lung disease and lung transplant support groups. Since September is Global Pulmonary Fibrosis Awareness Month, Vickie and I decided to do our part to help spread awareness of PF and to help raise funding for research of the disease. That’s why we’re organizing a benefit concert on November 2nd, from 2-6 at the Lehrer Pub, 8775 SW Canyon Lane in Beaverton. 



We have many loving and caring musician family and friends in the Portland area willing to participate in the benefit. Our local chapter of Donate Life will participate in the event because we feel strongly about organ donation, too. Please consider becoming an organ donor if you haven’t already done so. We know there are dedicated doctors and professionals working on finding a cure for PF but there’s still much to learn and much work to do before a cure is found for this disease.

Vickie and I hope to see you at the benefit, but if you can’t make it, please consider visiting our First Giving page to support the work of the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation. They are the leading organization in the US dedicated to spreading awareness and helping to find a cure for PF.

Many thanks for your support - and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!

Thank you,
Bruce and Vickie
