Sharon Raymond

Sharon has played an active leadership role in developing a new Better Breathers Club, a support group for COPD patients, in Buffalo. She made this happen by creating relationships with Catholic Health Systems, the largest health system in Western New York, and a local durable medical supply company American Home Patient. The club has a large membership of 24 members and is still growing. Having lost her father to COPD, Sharon has a true passion for the Lung Association's mission to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease, and it is evident in her work with the organization. She currently holds a position on the Western New York Leadership Board.
