Better Breathers Clubs

Better Breathers Clubs offer for people with lung disease and their families the opportunity to learn ways to better cope with chronic lung disease including COPD, asthma, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), lung cancer and other chronic lung diseases.  

These support groups meet regularly and feature educational presentations on a wide range of relevant topics providing tips and techniques to help manage your disease and support of others who share in your struggles. These support groups give you the tools you need to live the best quality of life you can.

If you feel alone and isolated, these support groups can help. It feels good to talk with others who understand, which has a positive impact on your health.
