I cannot get to this event but would be grateful of all information received on the day. I was diagnosed with IPF in 2010 and am in the proses of having more tests and a consultation at Wythenshawe under Dr Lenards clinic. I attend the MRI as well the consultant I see there has done the referral to see if any treatment is available .
