What is Blue Shirt Friday?
“Blue Shirt Friday” is a national campaign to increase awareness of the disease Pulmonary Fibrosis (PF), and the shirt color was chosen by a PF patient “Because blue is the color of my lungs deprived of oxygen by PF”. The shirts raise funds to benefit the PF community in many ways, and the spirit of the blue shirt message is multiplied by asking that they all be worn on a single day – Friday.
The idea has received the support of thousands of people nationwide (even world-wide: from Canada to Dubai and many other countries). The Blue Shirt message has became a common voice for PF patients, their family and friends, and gives them a chance to make others aware of the deadly disease and its symptoms.
What is the Second Edition?
NOW THAT SPIRIT CONTINUES, with a new “Second Edition Blue Shirt for PF” (created in 2012), sponsored by the Pulmonary Fibrosis Association, and carrying another message to renew and spread discussions about PF. Funds raised will provide assistance to the PF Community.
A Message from our former President
I hope you will join us to help spread awareness about this terrible, often fatal disease. I understand the need because I also have a ‘blue’ lung from PF, alongside a transplanted pink and healthy lung (February 3rd, 2011), but I will still do all I can to help other Patients with PF… As our Association’s statement of purpose reflects:
We may not be able to add days to their life, but
we hope to add more life to their days.
Together we can make a difference.
Jan Orndorff – President (2007-2016)
