COPD Singles Cafe Community Group

Having Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is hard to cope with, being single with COPD can be even harder to deal with! The purpose of this group is to reach out to single people with COPD. To provide a place where single people with COPD can come to talk, to share, to support, to relax, to meet people and make friends. So, come on in, grab a cup of coffee or tea, kick your shoes off, sit back, relax and enjoy!

    Curt has been on the COPD board for a while now, haven't had a message from him in a good month. Hope he's okay.
