As a COPD patient advocate, and the newest state captain from Missouri, I hope to accomplish bringing awareness to more people about COPD.
As a COPD advocate, I have signed up for COPD360Social and I have spoken to my family and friends 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, raising awareness by participating in health fairs and community events, and participating and promoting research opportunities to help find a cure.
My proudest COPD moment has been playing soccer with my grandson and also went swimming this year for the first time.
My inspiration to share is, “I Am Not My COPD”.
More about me, “I was diagnosed about 12 years ago it hasn't been a easy ride with copd for me when my body tells me to rest i rest and I'm not used to resting . and exercise is very important”
