As a former caregiver, friend, and the newest State Captain from Georgia, I hope to accomplish bringing COPD awareness to the forefront in the community where I live and throughout the state of Georgia. My goal is to help educate the general public, to advocate on behalf of those living with COPD at both the state and federal level,and to do all that I can to assist in the prevention and elimination of COPD.
As a State Captain, I am most interested in connecting others in the COPD community to the resources available so they can live healthier, fuller lives, and raising awareness by participating in health fairs and community events. I would also like to write about COPD to share my story and help raise awareness, and work with state, local, and national officials to improve COPD policy.
My proudest COPD moment thus far is the opportunity to serve as a State Captain for Georgia.
My inspiration to share is, “"I come in faith, to deliver hope and give love to all...believing that all is possible for those that dare to believe."
More about me, “I am excited to serve on behalf of my mother, Goldia A. who made her transition at the age of 52 in 1997 from a lengthy, valiant journey with COPD”
