Long Kayak for Lungs 2018 – Raising Awareness of Lung Disease

Dr. Mick Foley, together with Bill van Nierop, talks about Long Kayak for Lungs 2018, an effort to raise awareness of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF). IPF is a type of rare chronic lung disease that shows a progressive decline in lung health and function.

Bill was diagnosed with IPF in 2015, so he understands the challenges faced by those impacted by lung disease. Following his successful Long Walk for Lungs in 2017, Bill pushes to support Lung Foundation Australia with a new challenge for 2018 – The Long Kayak for Lungs, a 42-day charity kayak paddling 2,200kms from Albury NSW to Murray Mouth in South Australia.
