    My husband just passed last week after an 8-year battle with IPF. It was quick and it was peaceful – and I am so very grateful for at least that part of his struggle.
    In talking with the local Veterans Administration about possible benefits available to survivors, they asked me about Bob’s service: when did he serve? was he in Vietnam? Did I know if he might have been exposed to asbestos? Exposed to dioxin (Agent Orange)? I do not know. It certainly might have been a possibility.
    My question to the group (and this might be the wrong forum in which to ask it), is….does anyone know of any research that has been done into the correlation between dioxin and IPF? If I can dig up some facts or anything that might tie the two together, I might be able to apply for certain benefits available to Vietnam vets or their survivors. Please let me know if you are aware of any such research, or you have any ideas on how I might find such information.
    Thank you!
