Pulmonary fibrosis (PF) is a condition in which lung tissue becomes thickened, stiff and scarred. As the lung tissue becomes scarred and grows thicker, the lungs lose their ability to transfer oxygen into the bloodstream, making everyday activities, like breathing and walking, extremely difficult. It is a progressive disease, which means it tends to worsen over time. Every individual diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis has a unique experience with the disease and there is no “standard” or expected clinical course. Some people with PF remain stable for extended periods of time, others experience a stepwise deterioration over time, fluctuating between periods of stability and worsening symptoms, and a number may experience a rapid progression of symptoms. PF treatment strategies are highly individualized, based on a person’s medical history. With no known cure, the disease is often fatal within three to five years of diagnosis and affects more than 200,000 people in the United States alone
