Just Breathe: A Night for Pulmonary Fibrosis

Lead the way to a world without pulmonary fibrosis.

Join us on Thursday, June 28th from 6-9pm at American Social Brickell for a fun night of food, drinks, and prizes to benefit the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation.

[5/6/2018 update:

Due to unforeseen circumstances the event venue had to be changed. Fortunately, we've found a great spot at American Social Brickell. The contract has already been signed so there will be no more changing of venues. The structure of the evening remains the same on June 28, 2018 including: 3 hour open bar (liquor, wines, beers), appetizers, prizes, & guest speakers! We will have our own private area in the Kennedy Lounge (separate from the main bar), private bartender, and use of AV equipment for speakers/presentations. This change also allows more dollars per ticket to be donated to the foundation! Thank you for understanding.]

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.
