More than one million Canadians are living with COPD and don’t know it

Have you read our whitepaper, Helping the Missing Million?

Our initial findings show that more awareness around chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), including its risk factors and symptoms, is a gap that urgently needs to be filled.

Bev's Story

When Bev Black took a drag on her first cigarette back in 1964, she was oblivious to the risks. After all, just about everyone smoked in those days…

It was in the workplace, in restaurants, at the movie theatre and even in the hospitals. By the time she quit smoking the damage had already been done. As a COPD patient who has also been struck down a few times with pneumonia, the quality of Bev’s life, like millions of others, has been severely compromised.
