Friends for Life

I have found it necessary and therapeutic to be around other patients. When I was first diagnosed in 2008, I was afraid and felt like no one understood and that there was no one to talk to. When I had the opportunity last year to meet with hundreds of others, it really helped me see that I have a pulmonary fibrosis family and, friends for life.

Meet The Community

My father lost his battle with pulmonary fibrosis in January 2012. I work as a volunteer to raise awareness in his memory and on behalf of patients facing PF today. I liked connecting with people from across the country who are part of the community, as well as learning about ongoing research and treatments that will improve the lives of patients.

Learn about New Treatments

This is an opportunity to strengthen my relationship with others in the community and learn more about what is on the horizon for new and better treatments for those of us living with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis ... I'm always grateful and strengthened when I get to be with other pulmonary fibrosis patients and be reminded that I am not alone in this fight.

Meet PFF Staff

I went to PFF Summit 2013 in La Jolla, California several years ago, which was my very first one. I enjoyed meeting the very nice people from the PFF office. I'm certainly looking forward to returning to another Summit.

Speak with Pulmonologists

I wanted to go to find out as much as I can about pulmonary fibrosis and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis so I am educated on what my diagnosis is about. I learned how to talk with my doctor as an empowered patient, and I learned about what new treatments are in the pipeline.
