IPF foundations and support groups

You are not alone in your treatment

You have a doctor and his or her team working with you. You may also have a family member or friend who helps you out.

You can also get support from other people who have IPF. Through support group meetings, you may find you have a lot in common when you hear how other people are managing their condition.

Support groups can help you:

  • Gain a sense of control
  • Feel less alone
  • Solve day-to-day challenges
  • Talk openly about your feelings
  • Get another perspective on your condition
  • Find out more about your treatment
