National IPF Awareness Ribbon
On April 11, 2021, the Disabled World Organization certified and accepted our ribbon as the new National IPF Awareness Ribbon.
The following is the description of the ribbon published by the Disabled World Organization:
Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) awareness ribbon submitted by Josh Ingram, founder and president of the Fill Your Lungs Foundation. The current ribbon for regular pulmonary fibrosis is half red and half blue. This represents oxygenated and de-oxygenated blood traveling in and out of the lungs. Fill Your Lungs Foundation used the same colors, but made one distinct change - the symbol of a question mark depicted in red. This alludes to the unknown cause of IPF, the factor that separates it from its counterpart (PF). The design has been widely accepted and used as the awareness ribbon for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis - even being published on the cover of a UK edition of "Pulmonary Fibrosis Weekly" magazine.
