What is Pulmonary Fibrosis?
Pulmonary Fibrosis is a disease of the lungs characterized by scarring and stiffening of the lung tissue. This prevents the lungs from working properly, which results in an inability to take deep breaths and a progressive decrease in the amount of oxygen that can get to your body. See a more detailed explanation of Pulmonary Fibrosis, or check out our Resources and Recent News.
Who Are We?
The Pulmonary Fibrosis Association, Inc. is a non-profit nationwide charity incorporated in Texas and supported by public donations and fundraising events. In summary, our mission is to raise funds to provide assistance in obtaining necessary supplemental oxygen for pulmonary fibrosis patients with limited resources, educate the public about pulmonary fibrosis, and provide support groups to share information with and encourage patients and their loved ones. See more detail on our Mission and Purpose page.
How Can We Help?
The Pulmonary Fibrosis Association, Inc. is passionate about helping patients and their loved ones live with Pulmonary Fibrosis. We invite you to join one of our support groups to help you adjust to living with PF. You can visit with others who know what you are experiencing and have been right where you are today. If your financial means are limited, we may be able to assist you in obtaining supplemental oxygen.
How Can You Help?
We have many opportunities for you to help in our mission. You can make a tax-deductible donation; you can select one of our t-shirts or car magnets to receive in exchange for a minimum donation; you can honor a loved one with a memorial donation or a note on our memorial page; or you can participate in our annual Golf Tournament or other fundraising events, or our Global Candle Lighting Program.
