"There is hope for patients with pulmonary fibrosis

Today, we are acutely aware of our lungs. We are determined to raise awareness of pulmonary fibrosis and, more importantly, what can be done to help.

Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis is giving hope to patients. We are spearheading ground-breaking research programmes and have a network of 80 support groups across the UK providing practical support.

We are upscaling our online support alongside our telephone support line staffed by a specialist nurse.

We are working hard to reduce the isolation and anxiety and signpost to local services. We have also made a series of videos on topics like nutrition and exercise for people isolating." Steve Jones, Chair of Trustees for Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis.
