WHO WAS MARY LOU?
Mary Lou was Mom, Grandma, sister, wife and friend. She was a vibrant, generous person who was robbed of her joy of giving when she was diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis, battling the disease for almost 4 years. Prior to her diagnosis, Mary Lou could be found volunteering, developing friendships or providing care to one of the many people who knew her. She found God in everyone and turned to her God for the strength to endure the challenges she faced as her condition progressed. She lost the fight to Pulmonary Fibrosis on November 9, 2012, just one month shy of her 77th birthday.
WHAT IS PULMONARY FIBROSIS?
Pulmonary Fibrosis (PF) is a condition that causes lung tissue to become thickened, stiff and scarred. The lungs eventually lose their ability to transfer oxygen into the bloodstream, making everyday activities such as breathing and walking extremely difficult. It is a progressive disease, which means it tends to worsen over time. Every individual diagnosed with PF has a unique experience with the disease and there is no “standard” or expected clinical course. With no known cure, the disease is often fatal within 3-5 years of diagnosis.
