There is no goverment funding for Support,Awareness or research into this disease which kills more people every year than cancer.

it is a disease that is not widely known about there are 35000 people currently in the uk will Pulmonary fibrosis and 5000 a year more diagnosed?

life expectancy is just 2-5 years from diagnosis .With a lung transplant been the only cure but very difficult to get.

There are only 2 hospitals in the uk that have IPF specialist units , Castle Hill Hull which is fortunatley Michaels where we have a fabulous team who as well as doing their jobs as Doctors, specialist nurses use their own time to fund raise so hats off to them .

Hi my name is Angie, Like the majority of the Uk including Doctors,and nurses a year ago I also had never heard of Pulmonary Fibrosis. That all changed when my husband Michael was diagnosed with it . I was astounded by the lack of government support. Awareness and research.
