PF Caregivers

Family members, partners, friends, and neighbours shoulder much physical and emotional support for people living with pulmonary fibrosis (PF).

Finding ways to cope and thrive as a care partner is vital for you and the health of your loved one. CPFF is committed to supporting you as a caregiver and shining the spotlight on your needs and the needs of PF patients.
