MUSIC UP AND UNDER.

That little settee by the beauty parlor.
When your lungs can't get much air, you don't have the energy to walk far. So all over town, from the grocery store to the bank lobby, you've mapped out places where you can stop and catch your breath.
Who wants to live like that? If you have a chronic cough, wheezing or often feel short of breath, see your doctor and find out if it's COPD. With a simple breathing test called spirometry, your doctor can tell you for sure. The sooner you know, the sooner you can start breathing better. And living more.
Wouldn't it be wonderful to spend more time doing the things you love and less time looking for a bench, settee, or chair?
