Cantalope Puckers Up for PF

Cantelope, the mascot for the Trading Post in Ladysmith, British Columbia, supports the CPFF’s work in promoting awareness of pulmonary fibrosis (PF), a debilitating and life-threatening disease. For people with PF, breathing feels the same as if you tried to get all your air through a straw and with your nose blocked. The Trading Post is encouraging the surrounding community to try the CPFF Pucker Up Challenge for a few minutes to see what it is like to have to work hard for each breath. Encourage your community to take the Pucker Up Challenge. Click here to learn more.
