‘I got involved with WILD after my husband died because I didn’t want anyone else to feel as unsupported as I had been in his last year. I am pleased to say things have improved beyond recognition now. ’ Gill Southwell

'When I was diagnosed with IPF and told it’s, life reducing, and likely 3-5 years, your perspective changes and everyone copes differently. The main feeling is of isolation and no where to go. With the introduction of WILD and the ability to attend with education by experts is invaluable and in the company of similar people eases the sometimes less palatable parts of experiencing ILD.' Chris Brown
