Deep Breaths for Jane, my beautiful sister.

A couple of years ago, my sister, Jane was diagnosed with PFF. It came out of nowhere and was a shock to all of us. Our family was optimistic that with treatment, she could live with it for for years, but that was not to be. A critical flare-up sent her to the hospital, and within days she was gone. Jane was the hub of our family... we all came to her for support. Her loving and caring patience sustained all of us. She was truly an amazing daughter, sister, aunt, mother and friend. We are all heartbroken. PFF is a terrible, cruel disease that literally steals your breath. It is our deepest wish that a cure be found. Please consider any donation, to help us in this fight. Thank you

Join me for National Walk Day!

Saturday, September 25, 2021

I am proud to lead the way toward a world without pulmonary fibrosis (PF) as part of the PFF Walk. I hope you will join me as I raise funds to benefit the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (PFF) in preparation for National Walk Day.

Pulmonary fibrosis is a deadly and complex disease that causes progressive scarring in the lungs. PF affects over 200,000 Americans annually and 50,000 people will be diagnosed this year alone.

While there is still significant work to be done, progress in the fight against pulmonary fibrosis is being made. Your generosity allows the PFF to expand essential efforts for the PF community.

For more information on how your gift will make a difference in the lives of PF patients and their families, please visit

Thank you in advance for your generous support!
