Everyone has an important story. You can help tell a story that desperately needs to be told in New Hampshire.
Lung disease is affecting real people and families in our state today, and is burdening our healthcare systems. Our goal is to shine the spotlight on lung disease to make sure it gets the attention it deserves, and your stories will help our mission become the message.
COPD is the fourth leading cause of death and disability in the United States. Yet, due in part to the stigma associated with lung disease, there is a serious lack of awareness of and funding for lung disease. Sadly, the voices of lung health "champions" are few because of low survival rates among those affected.
Let's move past the stigma and join voices to speak on behalf of ourselves and those who are no longer with us. You can be a catalyst for improving lung health in New Hampshire! Let’s change the ending – together.
