Awareness Month

September is Pulmonary Fibrosis Awareness Month in Canada. Volunteers across the country hold events and awareness activities to educate the public, the media and government decision-makers, about the devastating impact of this disease and the hope that research brings. People living with the disease and their families, friends, colleagues and communities find satisfaction in participating in these initiatives. You will too.
