I started with lung disease in my 20's and wasn't diagnosed until 38. So much damage was done in that time that I will now require a lung transplant as this horrible disease progresses.

My dear husband died of I.P.F. last month.During his illness I had to research myself for any material help which was always given but not offered.It was a relief when he was admitted to Hospital where he was given expert care.

I had no awareness of this disease until a friend posted the devastating story of her mum. Definitely more awareness needed.

When someone is diagnosed with a terminal illness support should be there inmediately. People are left to fend for themselves while dealing with the trauma of the illness itself and being told they don't have long to live.
