Colin, who’s from the U.K., first noticed symptoms on holiday when he began to experience breathlessness and chest pains while walking. His doctor originally thought he might have angina and referred him to the hospital for further tests. Following a CT scan, Colin was diagnosed with IPF.

So far Colin is managing his IPF well and has a positive outlook on life. He explains how much the British Lung Foundation has helped him in coming to terms with the disease and how best to manage it on a day-to-day basis.
