Colin was diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, IPF, after he became breathless on a walking holiday in Cornwall. Colin was sent for tests and scans and eventually saw a consultant who diagnosed him with IPF. IPF is a build-up of scar tissue that makes lungs thick and hard, making breathing difficult. IPF is incurable and will progressively get worse. About half of people with IPF only live for three years after their diagnosis. In this film, Colin talks about how he is living with IPF and how he has been supported by the British Lung Foundation.
