Only Moments Should Take Your Breath Away – IPF

It is my sincere hope that everyone has a life full of moments that are so great they take your breath away and remain in your memory forever. Unfortunately there are people out their whose breath is being taken away by IPF.

IPF (Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis) is a disease that causes tissue in the lungs to become scarred and stiff, making it harder for a person to breathe.

This September is IPF Awareness Month. If you want to be a part of the solution, then join the cause. Share something about IPF using #IPF, #IPFWorld, and #BlueUp4PF. Take a picture of yourself Blowing Soap Bubbles and use the slogan Breath of Hope

Here are some links to find out more about IPF:
