• PERF, The Pulmonary Education and Research Foundation, is a small but vigorous non-profit foundation. We are dedicated to providing help for those with chronic respiratory disease through education, research, and information. We hope this newsletter is worthy of our efforts.
  • We would like to thank the many readers who updated their subscriptions to the Second Wind. A few of you paid your subscriptions again even though you had made other donations in the past year. We appreciate this! These extra funds will help us in our policy of sending the newsletter to all who benefit by it, even those without funds. On their behalf and ours, we thank you. We especially appreciate the generosity of Dr. Bill Dasher, Doris Dunn, Ida Wilson, Freda Standefort, Le Purrer, William Mac Indoe, E.A. Metcalf, Gerald Sandman, Harvey Wright, Bill Purdum, George Haramoto and Patricia Dunigan.
