HOOKSETT, NH The Second Wind Foundation for Pulmonary Fibrosis is sponsoring a Pulmonary Fibrosis Support Group in Southern New Hampshire on Wednesday October 21st at 1 p.m. at the Plumbers and Pipefitters Hall, 161 Londonderry Turnpike (Route Bypass 28), Hooksett, NH 03016.  The foundation is teaming up with pulmonary fibrosis patients in the Manchester, NH area who are interested in having a support group locally.

Pulmonary Fibrosis is a rare lung disease that creates scar tissue inside the lungs, making it harder and harder to breath. Right now there is no cure for Pulmonary Fibrosis, and thanks to donations from the Second Wind Foundation, new research is helping to find a cure.  Pulmonary Fibrosis affects 500,000 people in the U.S.

Ron and Marylou Geoffroy started the Second Wind Foundation after Marylou was diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis. They started the foundation to help raise awareness to a relatively unknown disease, and to help raise money for research.

“I’m proud to announce this new direction for our foundation in helping to establish a support group here in Southern New Hampshire for Pulmonary Fibrosis patients that want more information and have questions about their disease,” said Ron Geoffroy.


The Second Wind Foundation for Pulmonary Fibrosis is a non-profit charitable organization that helps to raise awareness, provide funding for research, and help families who suffer from Pulmonary Fibrosis.
