Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis or IPF is a disease where the tissue in the lungs becomes scarred and stiff making it harder for a person to breathe. When the tissue thickens the lungs can’t properly move oxygen into the blood stream, and a result the brain and other organs can not get enough oxygen to work properly.
In most cases doctors do not know what causes this (it is called Idiopathic when the cause is unknown) and there is no cure.
If you want to be a part of the solution, then join the cause this September as it is IPF Awareness Month. Share something about IPF using #IPF, #IPFWorld, and #BlueUp4PF. Take a picture of yourself Blowing Soap Bubbles and use the slogan Breath of Hope
