Just about a month ago we announced that we were almost three-quarters of the way to our goal of bringing in $10,000 for much-needed equipment to use in our research laboratory, a recipient of PERF funds. The needed state-of-the-art machines are a wireless oximeter used to record pulse rate and pulse oximetry during 6-minute and shuttle walk tests, and a hand-held spirometer to measure forced vital capacity (FVC) and the forced expiratory volum
We're so grateful for the generous donations made by so many caring members of the PERF and COPD community. Here's an update on our progress so far in our fundraiser. We're almost three-quarters of the way to our goal of bringing in $10,000 for much-needed equipment - a total of $6,945 has come in so far! Thank you, everyone. We'll keep you updated when more donations bring us closer to our goal.  
About two weeks ago we launched a fundraiser to raise the money needed to purchase two pieces of equipment to use in our research laboratory, a recipient of PERF funds.
