Ideopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis is a Terminal Lung disease with no cure apart from a Lung Transplant. On 14th August 2017 i was admitted to HairMyers Hospital, East Kilbride, Scotland. After having X-rays & CT Scans i was diagnosed with IPF. Whilst in the hospital i began to research everything that i could about this terrible disease. IPF is as serious as the worst of all the Cancers such as Leukaemia. The present Conservative Government gives up to £160 Million towards Cancer research and only £600,000 per year towards Ideopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis research. People with IPF suffer every minute of the day with Breathlessness and other effects such as severe joint pain caused by the lack of Oxygen in the blood. I myself have an Oxygen Machine at home which I have to use for 15 hours per day at a rate of 90% Oxygen X 2Litres per minute. To be able to get out of the house i have to use a Mobility scooter & Portable Oxygen bottles that only last for 3 hours. This is my life from now until the day I die of this terrible disease. The Government must make available Millions more in funding for Ideopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis research NOW, otherwise people are going to continue dying without knowing if there was ever a cure for IPF.
