A Patient’s Life with IPF: A Fresh Start
In this recent line of videos by this father of two named Mark, we are presented with his story of resilience and strength. In 2014, his health was rapidly declining and he found himself bedridden for most of the year because of the deterioration in his lung functions due to idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). Luckily, at the end of 2014 he received a double lung transplant at the University of California San Francisco Hospital and now, step by step, he can start anew with his life. This series of videos tells us about his life prior and after the transplant, where he shares with us what he has learnt through this process in the hopes his experience may help others like him.
