Coalition for Pulmonary Fibrosis Joins World-Wide 2010: The Year Of The Lung Effort
Date:12/23/2009

Campaign Seeks to Raise Awareness of Lung Disease, Change Perceptions and Help Patients

SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Coalition for Pulmonary Fibrosis (CPF) announced today it is joining with the American Thoracic Society (ATS) and lung health organizations around the globe for 2010: The Year of the Lung, a multi-faceted campaign that aims to raise awareness about the importance of lung health, generate social and political support for preventing and treating lung disease and encouraging increased public and private funding for lung disease research and development.

The CPF was asked by ATS to serve on the Year of the Lung committee and will work in partnership with the ATS and other global organizations during the 12-month campaign.

Led by the American Thoracic Society and the Forum of International Respiratory Societies, 2010: The Year of the Lung is a global effort to unite health advocates in the field behind a single purpose: to convey the urgency of the threat lung disease poses to the public's health and galvanize support that will make a difference in hundreds of millions of lives by developing new prevention strategies and treatments.

The CPF represents the 128,000 people who suffer from Pulmonary Fibrosis (PF), an untreatable and terminal lung disease that causes relentless and progressive scarring of the lungs. The disease has no FDA-approved treatment, no known cause and no cure, and claims 40,000 lives each year, the same number as claimed by breast cancer.

"We are thrilled to participate in this worldwide effort to unify the voices of lung health organizations and patient organizations to change public perceptions of lung disease and help to increase attention and research funding so lives can be saved," said Mishka Michon, Chief Executive Officer of the Coalition for Pulmonary Fibrosis. "It is our hope that the year's effort wi
