Today was the PF (Pulmonary Fibrosis) Walk for Team Charlie Gonzales. His family and friends gathered at Trussell Park to walk in support & gain information about PF. Charlie is diagnosed with Idiopathic (no known cause) Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) which is a condition in which the lungs become scarred and breathing becomes increasingly difficult. It's not clear what causes it.
- One in 200 over the age of 70 are living with IPF
- 50,000 new cases are diagnosed annually
- Symptoms are shortness of breath, dry hacking cough, fatigue & weakness, and chest discomfort
I have known Lupe from Facebook for several years and both she & Charlie deliver Meals on Wheels the same day of the week that I do. God has brought us together & they sure bless my life. Because of them, I know more about PF...
