Tell Your Members of Congress to Cosponsor the Pulmonary Fibrosis Research Enhancement Act

Pulmonary fibrosis is a progressive and fatal lung disease that causes 40,000 deaths annually in the United States.  The cause of pulmonary fibrosis is not well understood, and there is no treatment or cure.  Most people with pulmonary fibrosis live only three to five years after their diagnosis.

Legislation has been introduced in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives that would create the first federally funded national awareness and educational effort to improve understanding of pulmonary fibrosis in the public and medical communities.  It would also establish a National Pulmonary Fibrosis Advisory Board and Registry to collect data and make recommendations to the Secretary of Health and Human Services.  The advisory board would also collect data about other lung diseases and disorders – potentially helping millions of Americans living with lung disease. 

Please ask your Senators and Member of Congress to help those affected by pulmonary fibrosis and all lung diseases by cosponsoring the Pulmonary Fibrosis Research Enhancement Act.
