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 and preventing the lungs from properly moving oxygen into the blood stream, the brain and other organs.
September is IPF Awareness Month. There are several ways you can contribute, one is submitting your or your loved one’s story to pulmonaryfibrosis.org for their Profiles of PF on Facebook.
You can also share something about IPF using #IPF and #IPFWorld. Take a picture of yourself Blowing Soap Bubbles and use the slogan Breath of Hope
