Life with Pulmonary Fibrosis

Every person diagnosed with idiopathic or pulmonary fibrosis possess a unique experience with the disease. Some patients remain in a stable condition for years with the disease, while others experience rapid deterioration. However, most patients find themselves in the middle, with good and bad days. Although no one can predict each individual outcome, you can help yourself by maintaining a healthy lifestyle and working closely with your health care professional. No one accomplishes anything alone. The Foundation was created to provide support and education to help you live a stronger life!
