Help us Donate to the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is a very serious disease that causes the lungs to become scarred and stiffened. This stiffening may make it increasingly difficult to breathe. The disease affects people differently with some showing very rapid progression, while others have symptoms slowly worsen over time. The diagnosis can be devastating to a patient and their family.
According to the Cleveland Clinic, approximately 50,000 people in the United States have IPF, and an estimated 15,000 new cases develop each year. Op4G (Opinions 4 Good) and the Department of Medical Social Sciences at Northwestern University are conducting online research in the form of surveys to understand the conditions and patterns of conditions amongst patients who suffer from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis of the lungs. These surveys will be conducted in four different stages.
We will donate up to $5,000 to the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation
The stage one (1) online survey will collect responses from 500 people having the IPF diagnosis. In keeping with the Op4G mission, we will donate $5,000.00 ($10.00 for each completed survey) back to the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation. Wave 1 of this research project will go live the week of March 4th and end March 15th.
