Are you, or is someone you know, living with COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)?

You are not alone. An estimated 210 million people around the world have COPD. While the condition can be limiting, and you may not be able to do everything that you used to do, it’s important to focus on managing your COPD to live the best life possible.

It’s not too late to make small changes that have a positive impact on your daily life, and you can start today by setting your own personal challenge. Because even the longest of journeys starts with the first step.
