Lungs&You

Our Mission

 

For the last several years, Lungs&You® has served as a comprehensive and helpful resource for people living with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), a common type of interstitial lung disease (ILD). Recently, we broadened the site to include information about many types of ILD that progress, or get worse over time, while maintaining our extensive support for those with IPF.

Today, we’ve made it our mission to:

Educate

We aim to help those impacted by ILD understand the disease and how it may progress over time so they can spot early indications of ILD and make informed decisions about their health.

Empower

We want to help those diagnosed with ILD take an active role in their care by learning about the disease, how it may progress, their management options, and how to advocate for their health.

Support

We know ILD impacts more than just physical health. We want to help provide the emotional and practical support needed to overcome the challenges of living with ILD.

Advocate

Through our partnerships with ILD advocates like Queen Latifah and Bernie Williams, we aim to raise awareness of this little-known disease.

We hope that with the help of Lungs&You®, you’ll be better prepared to navigate life with ILD.
