There are many things you can do to stay healthy, active and independent with COPD.
Being diagnosed with COPD may cause you to feel confused, depressed, and overwhelmed. Be assured, this is very common in COPD, and you’re definitely not alone! There are over 15 million people in the US diagnosed with COPD, and it is estimated that another 15 million have COPD and don’t know it.
If you’re a family member and / or caregiver of a person with COPD, you too may be faced with a lot of new information, as well as emotional and physical challenges yourself. No doubt, those who care for loved ones with COPD have a lot of questions about what they can expect now, and in the future.
The COPD Foundation is here to help. Here you’ll find information, education, and emotional support to empower you to take control of your breathing – and your life!
