Living with IPF: Marilyn's story
Marilyn first noticed something was wrong when she kept getting colds and breathing became more difficult.
In this video she shares her struggle to get diagnosed with IPF (idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis), a condition that causes scarring of the lungs and has no cure.
This year, 5,000 people will be diagnosed with IPF in the UK. There is no cure, and just half will live for more than 3 years after their diagnosis.
We’re calling for greater awareness and better quality care for people affected by IPF.
