World COPD Day - 20 November 2019
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) affects 1.2 million people in the UK, and millions more have COPD but don’t even know it.
Linda's life was turned around when she discovered how getting active could help her recover her breath. Despite living with COPD, exercise has opened up another new world for her.
Life with COPD can be difficult. It's a progressive condition, which means there is currently no cure, and everyday tasks can become a challenge.
But with your help, we can change this. We're the only UK charity looking after the nation's lungs, and we're researching COPD to find new treatments and cures. Will you support us?
