Rose McGowan is lending her star power to Pulmonary Fibrosis month to help raise money and awareness.
40,000 people around the world die each year because of Pulmonary Fibrosis.
Pulmonary Fibrosis (PF) is a disease that slowly robs a person of their ability to breath.
Rose lost her father to PF.
"When I learned PF is 100 percent fatal and that my father was going to die, I was utterly hopeless and broken-hearted. I can’t begin to describe how PF wreaks destruction on the patient and their loved ones. Many illnesses, including breast cancer, are better known than PF, but PF is claiming just as many lives as these illnesses. Even worse, the investment in research for PF is minimal. It’s time for a change."
It's a disease which is just as deadly as other diseases, such as breast cancer, but has significantly less awareness.
Less awareness means less funding, less funding means less research and less research means less chance of finding a cure.
