Introducing the Exhale Foundation - a sigh of relief for those of us with COPD.

If you're a caregiver to someone with COPD, or if you suffer from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, a group of conditions such as emphysema, chronic bronchitis, asthma or other breathing-related problems, you've come to the right place!

The Exhale Foundation is an organization operated and run by social entrepreneurs devoted to helping patients lead better, healthier lives while coping with COPD. (If you have arthritis, we encourage you to visit our sister site, CreakyJoints, the premier arthritis service organization and online community.)

While you're here, though, signup for updates and be sure to tour the site for information about news and upcoming events, read about the Exhale Foundation team, participate in our discussion boards, and most importantly, learn how to start breathing better.
