Advocate

The Canadian Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (CPFF) is a resource for all patients and families affected by pulmonary fibrosis. One of our primary goals is to connect the community and support individual and broader advocacy efforts. We aim to raise public and government awareness of the disease, and the issues facing the community.

The CPFF focuses its efforts on advocating with, and on behalf of, patients, caregivers, family members or friends, to improve access to much-needed care and treatment for pulmonary fibrosis.


Attention Ontario residents: Invite your MPP to attend CPFFs event on December 4

On December 4, 2019, patients, caregivers and representatives of CPFF have appointments to meet with a number MPPs to tell them about CPFF and discuss how we can help the government to provide quality care to our Community more efficiently and cost effectively, for the benefit of both taxpayers and patients.

Late in the day, CPFF will host a reception for any MPPs interested in learning about pulmonary fibrosis and solving the current challenges faced by those living with the disease. If you are an Ontario resident, we are asking for your help with this initiative. CPFF has created a sample email invitation that you can send to your MPP inviting them to attend the session on December 4. You can also find a list of Ontario MPPs, with their email addresses and ridings, and whether or not they have already responded to our invitation. If they have responded, please do NOT send another invitation. If they have not responded, please send them your invitation, as soon as possible, so they can fit it into their calendar.

If the MPP responds to you directly, rather than RSVP to Puneet as directed in the invitation, please forward their response to puneet.luthra@gmail.com. And thank you for getting involved!
