Today is 6 months since my father passed away from IPF. I definitely miss him, the world goes on and IPF research is marching forward. September 7th is also Global Pulmonary Fibrosis Awareness Day.
On the suggestion of one of the readers on this site, I have made a Facebook Event. Please invite all your friends to the Event. It is a simple Events Page that aims to create awareness about Pulmonary Fibrosis, I have included some links and videos there.
At the very least, I hope to familiarize people with the existence of this deadly disease. With more knowledge and awareness, there will be greater emphasis on research and new breakthroughs will certainly take place!
This is the facebook event. Please invite all your friends and ask them to invite their friends as well.
Also, on this day, I have setup a recurring donation of US$100 per month to the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation. The foundation supports IPF research and clinical trials. It also coordinates support groups, etc. I will continue to donate as long as I can afford it. Hopefully my small contribution will help them fund more research towards finding a cure for this awful condition.
If you can spare some money for a worthy cause, please donate to the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation as well.
