Find support. Get support. Give support.
Connect with people facing similar experiences and challenges. Find a warm, non-judgmental community where members can share and receive emotional support and practical information. Share your concerns, learn coping strategies, and ask questions. Make new friends. Join a support group.
Support groups have shown proven benefits among many individuals affected by rare diseases. They have the potential to improve your emotional well-being and make a positive impact on your health.
Joining a support group can be a valuable resource to share information, educate others, or just let off some steam. The Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (PFF) is committed to providing the safest and highest quality support services to our members.
Remember: A support group should not replace treatment from a physician but used together, a support group can give you the tools you will need to have the best quality of life while living with pulmonary fibrosis.
