Edwardo Raises PF Awareness

As a Registered Nurse, I have cared for patients with pulmonary fibrosis and have seen the decreased quality of life and eventual demise that this disease causes.

 My father, age 65 and who has always been in good health, was diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis just over a year ago. It started with a slight cough and has progressed to requiring oxygen during periods of any exertion, excessive fatigue and being unable to even walk to the mailbox and back without resting and taking time to recover.

This horrible disease causes scarring of the lung tissue, making it difficult to breathe. Symptoms include worsening cough, fatigue, shortness of breath and decreased tolerance for physical activity. The cause is not understood. Treatment is very limited and there is no known cure. Prognosis is poor and life expectancy of those diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis is less than 5 years.

As a nurse, and as a family member of a loved one who has pulmonary fibrosis, I am doing what I can to raise awareness and to assist with searching for a cure. 

Please join me in supporting the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation by purchasing an Eduardo the Elephant. 40% of each Eduardo purchased will go to the PFF. The cost for Eduardo is $19.99 and the last date to order him will be 11/30/15.
