The Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation’s Commitment to Equality
The senseless and heartbreaking killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery, and many others are horrifying examples of the widespread racism that permeates our society at every level. Recent protests throughout the country and the world bind us together in a demand for equality and justice.
The Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation is committed to its mission to drive research and act as the trusted resource for individuals afflicted with pulmonary fibrosis. We exist to serve people of every race and background, and we know that the suffering resulting from PF is often accompanied by other painful hardships borne by patients and their loved ones.
To our community and our employees, we stand together with you as agents of lasting change, to fight racism through our actions, and to make this world a healthier place for all. Through research programs and patient education, we will continue to work to ensure that everyone with pulmonary fibrosis receives the care and treatment they need.
In the words of Martin Luther King, Jr., “I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.”
