It is vital that there is more public awareness of ILD and support at home. Well done to the petitioners for raising this important issue.

This is a horrible creeping isolating disease that can affect anyone, even non smokers. It restricts and shortens lives. There is no cure. Increased awareness and early diagnosis is essential to ensure appropriate help and any treatment that is available.
