Co-Sponsorship of Pulmonary Fibrosis Research Enhancement Act 2009 Increases to 27 Members
Date:5/7/2009

Despite these sharp increases, PF research funding levels remain stagnant. The federal government (NIH) spends an estimated $21 million annually on PF research. By comparison, it spends $85 million annually studying cystic fibrosis, a disease that is four times less common than PF, and $48 million on Lou Gehrig's disease, a disease five times less common.

The CPF is actively advocating for the Bill's passage, and is asking its 17,000 members, and all those who are affected by PF, to voice their support for HR 1079 by visiting http://www.coalitionforpf.org/cpf_advocacy.php and becoming a CPF advocate. By joining the ACT campaign, advocates will become part of an army of volunteers who are contacting Congress, national health policymakers and the media to educate them about the PF. Every three months, members will receive free the CPF's ACT Action Alert, a newsletter detailing the advocacy efforts and outlining ways you can help. The CPF's advocacy program allows members to easily contact their Member of Congress immediately to voice their support. For further information, please visit the CPF at www.coalitionforpf.org, call us at 888-222-8541, or email us at info@coalitionforpf.org.
