BENEFITING: Coalition For Pulmonary Fibrosis
My Dad (who was and still is my hero!) passed away from a horribly debilitating lung disease called Pulmonary Fibrosis. There is no effective treatment or cure for PF. Most patients will die within 3 to 5 years of diagnosis. Approximately, 40,000 people die each year from PF (the same number as breast cancer). Since my Dad had the genetic form of the disease, other members of my family are also at risk for developing PF. My goal is to raise awareness about PF and to raise funds to help find effective treatments and hopefully a cure. All funds raised will go directly to the Coalition for Pulmonary Fibrosis.
