Realities of COPD

I came back because a relative was diagnosed with COPD, of which I have little to no experience on a day to day basis dealing with the affects. COPD is scary to watch, and has no cure. I am not looking forward to this situation, so we do the best we can with what has been given. There is no timeline, and we will continue to fight, but I have watched my relative's overall health go down quite a bit in the past few years, and it is scary. I am concerned, and hope there is a long time, with a turn around in health to be seen, and that is the best we can all hope for. This entire situation is overwhelming to a point, but it is a day to day struggle. Anyone who has dealt with COPD that has any advice on how to make life better for someone with COPD would be greatly appreciated to email or comment given the situation. Oxygen therapy and surgery are something the individual is not willing to work with. So, prayers and positive thoughts....

    Healthline just launched a campaign for called "You Are Not Your COPD" where COPD patients share their story or advice about living with the disease. You can see the homepage for the campaign here:

    We have partnered with the COPD Foundation to promote the campaign and have pledged that for every submitted story, Healthline will donate $10 to the COPD Foundation.

    I am writing to ask if you can help spread the word about this campaign by including it as a resource on your page:

    The more stories we receive the more Healthline will donate to COPD research, support, and treatment programs. Would you please consider including this on your site or sharing with your followers?

    I'm happy to answer any questions you may have.

    Thank you,
