Breathing Should Never Be Hard Work
Learn about Robert Davidson’s journey with IPF in his book, “Breathing Should Never Be Hard Work.” A portion of royalties from the sale of books to fund IPF research.
One day in October 2007, my husband called to tell me the results of tests he had undergone to try and pinpoint the cause of his breathlessness.
He blithely stated: It’s pulmonary fibrosis” obviously knowing nothing about this disease.
