COPD affects more than just patients, it affects families.

Caring for people with COPD requires strength, commitment and support. We know COPD makes it difficult for patients to go to family events, to plan activities and take vacations. COPD makes the world feel smaller. 

Everyone would benefit from a clearer idea of which COPD treatments will keep loved ones out of the hospital and living a better, more active life.
