COPD Resources

This is the list of resources we couldn’t live without and are always recommending to COPD patients. These resources are trusted and contain information to help improve quality of life, smoking cessation and other services.

COPD can be a debilitating disease and it’s great to know that there are communities of sufferers and healthcare professionals doing what they can to educate and improve the well-being of others. If you’ve been recently diagnosed it’s nice to know that you are not alone as a sufferer of COPD and with a few adjustments to your diet, healthcare regimen and oxygen requirements you can still enjoy a life full of freedom and independence.
