My husband 61, was diagnosed with IPF in November of 2011, he is deteriorating very quickly, a set of lungs is his only hope. We have been turned down my Tampa General and Jackson Miami Hospital. He has to be an “otherwise Healthy being” the first dr we had did nothing, and now I find the issues he has are related to the IPF and disqualify him for lungs. I am desperate, I want him to live…..on and off of steroids and xanax, spent a week in hospital three weeks ago for respiratory failure. Anything anyone knows of to help, please send me info….
