Oct 2, 2020: Nonin Blog: "Even During a Pandemic, Kansas City Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation is Finding a Way to Empower Patients"

Stephen P Phillips passed away on September 29, 2020 at home surrounded by loving family.  A dedicated family man, Steve is well known for his roles in popular Kansas City bands including Steve, Bob & Rich, The Rainmakers, and The Elders. He was generally a healthy guy who began feeling the affects of his obscure pulmonary fibroses in late 2019. His symptoms progressed rapidly, and he died less than a year later.  Stephen’s mother died of pulmonary fibrosis in 2016. The family hopes KCFPF will be able to raise public awareness, explore the genetic connection, and support professionals in working together toward the prevention and cure of pulmonary fibrosis.
