Pulmonary fibrosis is a deadly and complex disease that causes progressive scarring in the lungs. Pulmonary Fibrosis (PF) affects over 250,000 Americans annually.
Unfortunately, Irene Burgess (wife to Bill, mother to 6, grandmother to 14, great grandmother to 14, aunt to many and friend to all), was one of those individuals. She lost her 5 year battle with PF in January of 2018. She was strong and brave and fought for breath until the end. Watching her suffer from this disease was a challenge for all of us, as there was nothing that we could do to make it go away. Now, what we can do, is help raise funds for research and care, in hopes that no one else suffers like she did. So, please join join us in honoring Irene, and help us lead the way toward a world without PF by walking with Team Irene in our Fourth Annual Walk for PFF on October 8, 2022.
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.
