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

What is Breath Matters?

Breath Matters Lung Disease Support Group

Since 2005, the Breath Matters Lung Disease Support Group has been meeting and presenting speakers to the community of lung disease sufferers in the Central Virginia/ Richmond area.

Our speakers present expertise, news, information and dialogue about lung disease. Our goal is to engage a suffering lung disease patient with the best available information, to provide support, and be a resource in the shifting world of pulmonary and respiratory affliction.

We meet each month. There is no cost to attend. Any lung disease sufferer, their family or friends are also encouraged to attend. Refreshments are always provided, and questions and answers always accompany our presentations.

We are a registered 501(c)3 non-profit.
