Pulmonary Fibrosis (ILD) Support

Pulmonary Fibrosis is a lung disease that occurs when lung tissues become damaged and scarred. This thickened, stiff tissue makes breathing very difficult.  

Health Support: BC Lung co-hosts an annual pulmonary fibrosis (ILD) patient forum. Learn more about the disease, new diagnostic tool, treatments, and medications. Participating experts talk about the importance of nutrition, exercise, and oxygen in the management of symptoms.
