    So helpful If only to know the truth as unpalatable as
    It is.surely this is a global problem giving support
    And research to sufferers of such a difficult
    Illness to handle

      Dear Basil,

      Yes, this is a global problem that is just beginning to get the recognition it deserves after years of denial by tobacco companies. With so little funding from the government wouldn’t it be wonderful if more millionaires dedicated some of their great wealth for research and support pulmonary rehabilitation? Thanks for showing your interest in this huge neglected problem.

      Warm regards,

      Mary Burns, RN, BS
