September is Global Pulmonary Fibrosis Awareness month

global pf awareness month 2015

September is Global Pulmonary Fibrosis Awareness month which has been designated by the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation and you can get involved and help raise awareness.

IPF World Week is also just around the corner – this year it is October 5 – October 11.

Ideas for Global Awareness month:

– #BlueUp4PF social media challenge; you can dye your hair blue, paint your face blue, wear blue clothes. Whatever you do, make sure you take a picture and share it on Twitter with the hashtag #BlueUp4PF

– Hold an awareness raising event such as coffee morning, bake sale, sponsored walk/swim/cycle – anything you like!

– Donate to Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis – visit our donate page for more details on how to give.

Thank you!
