Did you know that respiratory disease is now the third leading cause of death? The sole mission of the CowaLUNGa event is to promote healthy lungs and fight all types of lung disease through research funding, advocacy, and education.
There are currently 12 million adults in the US with diagnosed COPD and an additional 12 million adults are believed to have undiagnosed COPD. This is evidence that there is an extreme lack of awareness regarding this disease specifically. If found early, many forms of COPD can be treated and managed. However, COPD is often not found until the disease is very advanced because people do not know the early warning signs. Sometimes people think they are short of breath or less able to take part in their normal activities because they are "just getting older."
Watching someone you love struggle to do something as simple as breathing (something most of us take for granted) can be heart wrenching and can make you feel totally helpless. Education and awareness play a key role in stopping/treating/managing this disease before it’s too late. Thank you so much for your support and participation!
