It is a turning point when the dreams and hopes of the few connect to the many, and together they overcome barriers and push forward to achieve what was once thought to be unreachable. As we cross our tenth anniversary, we are poised to conquer challenges, expand our reach, and touch the lives of all those who suffer. Supporting the New Decade, New Reach dinner allows the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation to continue the expansion of our programming across the United States and internationally. In particular, your gift will allow the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation to fund new, peer-reviewed research awards in pulmonary fibrosis; to expand our patient education and support programs; to continue representing the interests of the pulmonary fibrosis community through our advocacy work in Washington, D.C., and most importantly, to continue being a source of compassionate support for every patient and family coping with pulmonary fibrosis.
