Tid-Bits About Pulmonary Fibrosis (Part 1)

~For all the other Supermen and Wonder Women that fight for life every day~

●  Approximately 48,000 people are diagnosed each year with Pulmonary Fibrosis

 Pulmonary Fibrosis is 100% fatal (without a lung transplant)

  Every 13 minutes someone dies of PF.  That's roughly 111 people each day
  3,323 will die of PF by the end of this September

  Approximately 40,000 people die each year of PF
  Pulmonary Fibrosis means literally "of the lung Scarring"

  It is impossible for lungs to function when they are full of scars.
