Georgieff-Fenton Walk for PF – Montreal
17 September 2022 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm EDT
Todd Georgieff’s involvement with PF is both personal and professional. Working in Research and Development for a pharmaceutical company, he was involved in managing studies for PF when there were no treatment options available.
It was a couple of years later that he learned his Father-in-Law, Donald Pamenter from Hamilton Ontario, had been diagnosed with IPF. Like many patients, it took some time even for his knowledgeable doctors to finally determine the real cause of his breathing difficulties and severely limited mobility. He was very surprised to find out that he was suffering from this rare disease that he was involved with.
Todd joined the CPFF board the year that Donald passed away, with the hope of ensuring other patients and families would have access to support and information to help them deal with their PF.
