RAISING AWARENESS OF PULMONARY FIBROSIS

I met with lung disease charity Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis to discuss campaigning work the charity is undertaking on behalf of those affected by pulmonary fibrosis (or lung scarring).


This deadly lung disease progressively scars your lungs until you can’t breathe. Currently there is no cure and life expectancy with pulmonary fibrosis is worse than many common cancers.


I support raising awareness of this disease and the distinct challenges faced by people living with lung scarring in North Ayrshire & Arran. Tens of thousands of people in the UK are living with pulmonary fibrosis. Common symptoms are a persistent cough and breathlessness, but many people aren’t diagnosed until late and miss out on the support and treatments they need.

Pulmonary fibrosis is a devastating diagnosis, and I am delighted to help raise awareness of this terminal lung condition.
