Hello all. I hope you don’t mind me posting another request on here but another opportunity has come up for patients to get involved in raising awareness of lung disease.
Public Health England is planning a local breathlessness campaign, which will launch in just a couple of weeks in Oldham and Rochdale. They have asked me to help them to find local case studies so that they can tell people what it’s really like living with breathlessness and how important it is to get it checked out.
They are looking for someone in these areas, aged over 50, who has been affected by breathlessness. This could be someone who was suffering breathlessness and went to see their doctor, to be diagnosed with COPD, or lung cancer. Alternatively if you have lost a loved one, to one of these conditions, and recall that they suffered from breathlessness then you may also be able to get involved.
Case studies like these or similar nature would be great support for the campaign. If you think that your story is similar to what they’re looking for and would like to help then it would be great to hear from you. Please email me on PatientVoice@blf.org.uk, or give me a call on 0207 688 5557.
Thank you for reading.
