Introductions & Welcome!
Hello wonderful forum members!
I, along with BioNews (which is the company that hosts the Pulmonary Fibrosis News site and our Forums), are very happy with the growth of these forums and that is all thanks to…. YOU, our amazing members! We dream of a day that these forums become the “go-to” online platform for others looking for both peer and professional support for living with pulmonary fibrosis (PF).
As we all know, living with a life-threatening lung disease brings not only a lot of physical anguish but it touches us in an emotional and social way as well, making these things difficult to navigate at times. As a patient with IPF, I know that I wouldn’t be able to live with this disease without the support of others, including many of you who generously give your time to these forums, and selflessly share your experiences and stories with others and myself. I am so very grateful. I have heard wonderful feedback and stories about how this forum has benefited others!
With that being said, the “back-end team” has been looking at ways to make this forum even more effective for you, and future patients, caregivers or professionals who join us. One of those ways is increasing posts made to the site, hopefully generating more traffic to the forums and in order to do that, there are some BioNews team members who are going to join us and help me with posts!
Please welcome Marta Ribeiro and Isaura Santos to our forums. They are not patients living with PF, but are strong advocates for us and are passionate about sharing news pertaining to PF. This will be their role as they help me deliver regular content on our forums, please join me in welcoming them! You’ll see their profiles active on our forums sharing news-related content (I will still be making posts on personal experiences of living with IPF) and replying to some conversations as well. I am excited to have them on board to help us continue to grow this wonderful online support community.
With so much gratitude to you all,
