Support Pulmonary Fibrosis Research
Currently, 200,000 Americans are diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis. Over 62,000 of those people live in New York State. In fact, more than 1,400 PF patients live in Monroe County. We are fortunate to have a prestigious research program, The University of Rochester Interstitial Lung Disease Center, right in Rochester, NY. This is the only program in Upstate New York that has received distinction as a Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation’s Care Center Network. The GWC & GFS annual golf tournament is dedicated to donating funds to this important PF research. Although the tournament is cancelled for 2020, your donations for this important research are greatly appreciated.
Pulmonary fibrosis has no known cure. The condition causes scar tissue to develop on the lungs, affecting the ability to effectively transport oxygen to the bloodstream. The decreased oxygen levels and stiff scar tissue cause shortness of breath, persistent coughing, and loss of appetite. One person dies every 13 minutes from PF.
Tee’d Off at PF
Over the last 12 years of our golf tournament, we have raised over $275,000 for pulmonary fibrosis research. If you are still tee’d off, donate now! Donate here to help our family, friends, and neighbors breathe easier.
