According to Statistics Canada, and with figures gathered between 2009 - 2011, there was 1.3M "reported" (diagnosed) cases of COPD in Canada, and in excess of 4M Canadians with a lung function indicative of this disease.
Currently the 4th leading cause of death and projected to be #3 by 2020.
Help yourself by learning to live with COPD, not simply "suffering from."
