Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Currently the 4th leading cause of death and projected to be #3 by 2020.
We believe in "living with" COPD, not "suffering from."
Patients, caregivers, family members, the general public, clinicians, students, organizations..... everyone can learn and benefit from the information herein.
According to Statistics Canada, and with figures gathered between 2009 - 2011, there was 1.3M "reported " (diagnosed) cases of COPD, and in excess of 4M Canadians with a lung function indicative of this disease.
You Are NOT Alone!!!
Everything begins with education.
We hope this site will be a start for you.
