The Canadian Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation is a registered Canadian Charitable Foundation established to provide hope and support for people affected by pulmonary fibrosis. Robert Davidson, president of the CPFF, created the organization in 2009 to raise money to find causes and treatments for PF, provide education and support for people affected by pulmonary fibrosis, and to help answer those non-medical questions frequently asked by those suffering with the disease. The CPFF is a not-for-profit charitable organization.
Our vision is make lung transplants the LAST resort not the ONLY resort for people with pulmonary fibrosis.
Our mission is to raise funds to finance research to better understand, develop treatment and find a cure for pulmonary fibrosis.
Our key objectives in the battle against pulmonary fibrosis are to:
- Raise public awareness about this fatal disease
- Offer support to those affected by pulmonary fibrosis
- Represent Canadians affected by PF to government, healthcare professionals, the media and the public – to be “the patient voice” for PF.
The CPFF works closely with the medical community and with support from Canadians we hope to achieve our vision, mission and objectives.
The CPFF’s logo is an open blue and red fan. The fan itself represents movement of air. The gradient colour symbolizes the oxygenation of blood that is necessary for survival. Bright red is the colour of oxygenated blood and blue is un-oxygenated blood.
