I am riding for my Pepere who passed away from COPD. The hardest thing to do is to watch someone you love so much slowly pass from a disease. I am joining my warrior of an aunt this year and we will be riding & completing this 25 mile ride together. I've supported her over the years while she has done this and now I'm finally able to do this along with her.
Lung disease can take someone's breath away, leaving them unable to work, exercise or play. Growing faster than almost any other major illness, lung disease, including lung cancer, asthma and emphysema is the third leading cause of the death in the United States.
I know times are tough in the world, but please help in any way you can.
