Money is needed to fund research to help find a cure for this terminal disease, Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

I am trying to raise money to fund research for my disease, Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. I am trying to raise money for the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation in Chicago, who in turn give the money to centers across the U.S. who are trying to find a cure.

1. Currently, there is no cure for pulmonary fibrosis

2. Pulmonary fibrosis claims as many lives as breast cancer does

3. Pulmonary fibrosis is far more prevalent than we know--many pulmonary doctors know nothing about it so they can't diagnose

4. Pulmonary fibrosis is not only claiming the lives of older people, but also people in their 30s, 40s & 50s
