The COPD Foundation is partnering with the Three Lakes Foundation on a common mission of improving the lives of individuals living with Chronic lung diseases.

Pulmonary fibrosis (PF) is a lung disease that happens when lung tissue becomes damaged and a thickened, stiff scar tissue makes it difficult for the lungs to function. PF symptoms include persistent cough, shortness of breath and fatigue. Some individuals with PF also have a diagnosis of COPD.

We are sharing with you an important message to Patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals: Pulmonary Fibrosis (PF) innovators want to hear from YOU.

The PF Perspectives Project

To find new innovations that will make a difference for the 3-million people living with PF worldwide, Three Lakes Foundation and MATTER have partnered to launch the PF Perspectives Project. The project aims to find and amplify stories of people in the PF community and — through the learnings of those stories — identify the types of solutions needed and work with innovators to develop them.

Are you living or caring for someone with Pulmonary Fibrosis? Submit your story to the PF Perspectives Project.

Select participants will win $500 and work with innovators building new PF solutions.
