 Second Wind Foundation for Pulmonary Fibrosis

Board Members

RonThe Second Wind Foundation for Pulmonary Fibrosis was established by individuals whom have been affected by this disease.  My wife Mary Lou had the disease and had a double lung transplant on June 12, 2011, the only way you can be cured by this disease. However due to complication other than from Pulmonary Fibrosis, Mary Lou passed on December 18, 2011.

We decided that more people needed to understand the life changing aspects of pulmonary fibrosis and what people go through when they have PF.  With no cure, pulmonary fibrosis will take the life of 40,000 people each year in this country.  It is our goal to provide a clearer understanding of this disease, help finance research to find a cure, and assist families with pulmonary fibrosis if they are financially in need.

Please take the time to look over our website and if you have any questions about PF or wish to help us with our cause, feel free to contact us.

Unfortunately due to complications from other issues while in the hospital, Mary Lou left us on December 18, 2011.We are saddened by the loss of one of our founders, however it provides us with a significant drive to help with finding a cure for PF and help increase the awareness of this disease.

We will long remember Mary Lou and keep her in our hearts forever.
