The Billings Gazette has an article up about how Evel Knievel has Ideopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF).
TWIN FALLS, Idaho - Evel Knievel may have finally met his match. And he's not going to clear this hurdle.
Renowned for his death-defying stunts, Knievel has now landed in major medical trouble. He says his doctors give him three to five years to live.
Knievel suffers from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, a condition that scars the lungs, replacing the air sacs with scar tissue. As the scars form, the tissue becomes thicker, reducing the lung's ability to absorb oxygen. There is no cure. [BillingsGazette.com]
