Welcome to my personal fundraising page!

Pulmonary fibrosis (PF) is a condition that causes lung tissue to become thickened, stiff, and scarred. The lungs eventually lose their ability to transfer oxygen into the bloodstream, making everyday activities such as 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.

With no known cure,  the disease is often fatal within three to five years of diagnosis. In the  United States, PF affects more than 200,000 people. 

Because of the work of the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (PFF), there is hope for those living with PF. Your donation helps fund crucial research, increase awareness, and sustain vital programs that help people with PF and their families live better lives. 

I imagine a world without pulmonary fibrosis. Thank you for helping me lead the way!
