On September 25, Sacramento resident Forrest Reed is joining patients,families,and friends across the country for the virtual National PFF Walk Day. We’re taking one step closer to a cure for pulmonary fibrosis (PF), a debilitating, incurable lung disease that causes scarring in the lungs and affects more than 250,000 Americans.
The PFF Walk is presented by the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (PFF) during Pulmonary Fibrosis Awareness Month. Forrest was diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis after having a lung biopsy in March. . He is a member of the Central Valley Pulmonary Fibrosis Support Group. Forrest is now an active voice in the PF community and will be bringing the spirit of the PFF Walk to the Sacramento area to drive more awareness and education about the disease. He is registering members to join their Team Breathe Easy for the local walk at William Land Park.
