As a patient advocate, and the first state captain from Wyoming, I hope to accomplish helping to raise awareness about COPD in my local community and statewide.
As a COPD advocate, I have spoken to my family and friends about COPD, and I have sent a letter to my members of Congress about 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 working with state, local, and national officials to improve COPD policy. I would also like to participate and promote research opportunities to help find a cure, as well as raise awareness by participating in health fairs and community events.
My proudest COPD moment was when I quit smoking!
My inspiration to share is, “Be who are and say what you feel....Because those matter don’t mind...And those that mind don’t matter!”
