patientMpower PF awareness month video chats – Michele Peters from Team Jeffery for PF
by Eamonn Costello | Back to Blog
September is a global month long campaign to help raise awareness of Pulmonary Fibrosis, aid timely diagnosis and help patients with pulmonary fibrosis to get the treatment and care that they need.
At patientMpower we will be involved in lots of activities for Pulmonary Fibrosis month – This video is the first in our video series for the month. We’re delighted to be joined by Michele Peters from Team Jeffery for PF for our first video of the month.
In March 2010, Michele’s husband Jeffery Peters was diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF). They started Team Jeffery for PF as they felt they needed to do more to raise awareness about the disease. In 2014, they became support leaders and have participated in supporting the local PF community in any way they could. Jeffery passed away from IPF in 2015.
Michele continues the important work to raise awareness in Jeffery’s memory.
