TODAY: Monday, August 14, 2017

April Williams, Nutritionist


Hello from Breath Matters!

This August 14, we're hosting a Founder's Day celebration at the Breath Matters monthly meeting.

Our focus will be mainly on the original founders Russell Glover and David Sanders, but we are also planning to applaud membership for their support in the development of this charitable legacy.

The meeting agenda will mostly resemble the typical monthly meeting, with a topical speaker and a sharing session. However, we also will have a bit of a look back at the history of the organization and a thank you to those folks who really were fundamental to getting Breath Matters started.

We'll end with some light refreshments and a casual mingle. We are committed to keeping it fun and light, Russell and David would have hated something morose and downbeat!

The details: Aug 14, 1:15-3pm

Johnston Willis Hospital (Stalker Auditorium).

We really hope to see you there and give you a hearty "thanks" for your support. We'd appreciate an RSVP, just to help our planning.

Also during the introductions if you have a quick story (less than 1 min.) on how Breath Matters has helped you or your loved one cope with your disease let us know when you RSVP.

Please RSVP board members Cathy Bray call 804-334-8856 or email cat2bob3

Or Bernadette Sneed call 804-937-6855

Pulmonary Fibrosis Study

Action Changes Things

The Participation Program for Pulmonary Fibrosis (P3F) are currently recruiting pulmonary fibrosis patients (fibrosis of any etiology, not just IPF) to sign up for a Contact Registry as well as for a study in which we will examine the effects of daytime supplemental oxygen on a number of outcomes.

For our supplemental oxygen study, we are looking to enroll patients currently using supplemental oxygen and those likely to need supplemental oxygen in the next year or so.

We are asking for your help only to spread the word about this study to all the members of your support group. All data collection will occur either online or via mailings.

Packets containing a more detailed explanation of the study along with recruitment materials (e.g., flyers, business cards) are being mailed to you and should reach you in a few days.

We appreciate your time and attention, and we hope that you can help us by letting the members of your pulmonary fibrosis support network know about these exciting opportunities.

If you would like more information about the P3F, please check us out at and follow us on Twitter at @DoctorSwig or email our Principal Investigator, Dr. Swigris, directly at
