Being Thankful for Our Community! COPD Awareness Month 2022

Last updated: June 2023

November is COPD Awareness Month. From being first diagnosed and finding a treatment that works for you to learning to live with this chronic condition, we know it isn't easy. That is why we want to focus this year on our community here at COPD.net and why we are thankful for it!

Finding things to be thankful for

Being diagnosed with COPD means learning to accept that life may look different than you originally planned. Learning to function under the limitations of COPD may be challenging and frustrating, but that doesn't mean there aren't things to be grateful for.

Hopefully, our community is just one of the things you may be thankful for, and here our Patient Leaders share some things they are thankful for:
