How to Make IPF Inspiration and Encouragment as Fierce as RuPaul

What is it about inspiration?  Where does it come from?

If you are living with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), you may want to feel moved, and then to use that feeling to create love, joy, passion, and purpose.

Or maybe you’ll just savor a little bit of comfort for yourself as you do your best to manage this progressive lung disease.

Though it can look different for all of us, I suspect this feeling of inspiration is something we look and wait for in life: a sense that there’s boundless support out there, and we have the capacity to feel, channel, explore, and express it.

And that’s exactly what Roche, the world’s largest biotech company, has done for a community of people living with and supporting loved ones with IPF.

A couple of weeks ago, Roche arranged for a group of people with IPF, and their children and grandchildren, to all meet up in London.

The event was aimed at ensuring that more information and support is available to those diagnosed with the disease, and their loved ones.

If you’re living with IPF and feeling isolated, your friends and family can be vital sources of support, and can help you cope with stressful situations and difficult times that arise in your medical journey.

You may feel that people won’t understand, but people may surprise you.

They may have experienced difficult times themselves and be able to offer advice. But it is important to remember that, for most people, your friends and family care about you and will want what’s best for you and will want to help you if they can.

The world around us is a prime source for inspiration when we think about it, and I think most of the inspiration has to do with relationships.

Just like the relationships cultivated by Roche.

Fist pump to you, Roche!
