Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation Walk -

There are no words to express how thankful I am to all of you. 
We are thrilled with the number of participants that held their own virtual walk or run and all those who gave so generously

during this difficult time.

Your kind support allows the Simmons Center to continue to fund

cutting-edge research and to support and educate patients,

families and caregivers. 


We all share a common bond and passion, and we will never stop

fighting until we find a cure.

All of us together can make a difference.
