As the newest patient advocate and State Captain of New Jersey, I hope to accomplish spreading more awareness about COPD.
As a COPD advocate, I have spoken to my family and friends about COPD, I have signed up and am an active member on 360social, and I have participated in COPD research opportunities, such as the COPD PPRN network. I have also sent a letter to my members of Congress about COPD.
As a State Captain, I am interested in connecting others in the COPD community to the resources available so they can live healthier, fuller lives, and I would also like to be involved in fundraising opportunities.
My proudest COPD moment has been when I campaigned for the fresh air fund on behalf of The COPD Foundation.
My inspiration to share is, “The only thing stopping You is You!”
A fact about me, “I was diagnosed in August of 2016, after about 1 week of feeling sorry for myself I took action, joined COPD360Social and started a healthy diet and exercise”.
