Mission and Purpose

This organization’s purpose is to raise funding to:

  • Provide assistance primarily for obtaining prescribed supplemental oxygen and medical equipment, and (as sufficient funding can be allocated) prescribed medications, to under-insured, non-insured, and acutely ‘in need’ Pulmonary Fibrosis Patients; and
  • Promote public education and awareness of the disease, its effects and the need for early detection and treatment; and
  • Establish and promote an area PF Patient Support Group and helpline, and to encourage formation of affiliated support groups in other cities, giving patients and their families face-to-face encouragement in their common battle with this disease through information sharing;
  • As funding allows, support medical research programs and other similar 501(c)(3) entities working for the discovery of the cause, treatment and cure of Pulmonary Fibrosis.
