Louise and Jenny Doran have been long-term supporters of Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis, since they tragically lost their mum, Anne to IPF in 2020. They’ve teamed up with bestselling author and historian Alison Weir to host a talk and book signing to raise funds to support people living with lung scarring.
Described by friends as an inspiration, Anne was diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis in 2014 when she was 58. The former senior manager at Royal Liverpool Hospital, who worked as a magistrate and school governor despite battling the disease, died in August, 2020.
Since then, the two sisters have put on several fundraising events from raffles to art competitions, as well as raising awareness to help APF create a better future for other families affected by pulmonary fibrosis.
On 30th June 2022, Louise and Jenny Doran are putting on interesting talk, “delving into history” with acclaimed author Alison Weir all to fundraise for Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis in Stockport. Tickets are just £10 and all money goes towards pulmonary fibrosis research. Please donate your ticket fee on our JustGiving Page.
