COPD is the third leading cause of death in America¹. It has taken many lives, including the late Leonard Nimoy last year. But with greater awareness, we can help the 30 million affected by COPD² get treatment and manage the disease better.
Every breath with COPD can be a struggle—
like breathing through a straw.
Join us in continuing Leonard’s last mission to raise awareness and empathy for COPD. Simply breathe through a straw and post a straw selfie on social media and tag your friends.
It’s a heaviness in your chest and it doesn’t really go away.
3 CAUTION: for those with a respiratory or heart condition, if this activity could cause you difficulty breathing, we suggest you do not participate or do so under the guidance of your physician.
