Pulmonary Fibrosis Awareness Month
The Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (PFF) mobilizes people and resources to provide access to high quality care
and leads research for a cure so people with pulmonary fibrosis will live longer, healthier lives. The PFF
collaborates with physicians, organizations, patients, and caregivers worldwide.
Pulmonary fibrosis (PF) is a group of lung diseases that causes scarring in the lungs, which limits the oxygen
intake necessary for the brain, heart, and other organs to function. PF affects 200,000 Americans and 50,000
new cases are diagnosed each year. There is no known cure.
Throughout September, Pulmonary Fibrosis Awareness Month makes a concentrated effort toward spreading
knowledge, increasing activities, support, and funding for those affected by this devastating disease.
As part of Pulmonary Fibrosis Awareness Month, the PFF has invited building owners across the country to light
iconic buildings in PFF blue. Participants will be featured in our #BlueUp4PF social media campaign which
reached more than 915,000 people in 2017.
