I am new here and just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Susan from Texas and my father has IPF. He is early stages from what we understand but is convinced he will be gone within a year or two. I guess that is possible but I am hoping to find stories and information to make him more positive so that he has a better chance of many more years to come. He is 70 (almost 71) and was a smoker for many years. His mother and sister both died of emphesema and lung cancer. I hope to be able to share experiences with you all and gather information that will hopefully help us get him to a more positive outlook or at least better deal with what is ahead of us. I wish you all well and thanks for letting me join.
