these sites have great info and i and many others have learned quite a few things that are helpful with copd . however , i would like to see sites like this one and others lobby our senators and reps to push the medical field and research teams to find a CURE for copd or treatment to stabilize it. kind of like they have done with HIV. senators and reps could push for more moneys to be set aside for research and demand the the tobacco company's direct funds to help research find a cure quick . i am thankful for my copd meds . they do help but its kind of of a band aid . its not a cure and i am sure with proper funding a cure could be found . copd is the 3rd leading cause of death, it would make common sense to try hard to find a cure soon !
