Nearly 21 million women in the U.S. live with chronic lung disease.
Millions more have yet to be diagnosed.
Catch Your Breath
The numbers are breathtaking.
The Catch Your Breath® Women and Lung Health Initiative was inspired by the story of one woman’s struggle with lung disease. Lynn Kotsiantos lived in a suburb of Chicago, never smoked and lived a healthy lifestyle. After having tests done for a persistent cough, the mother of three was shocked to learn she had lung cancer. After a nine-month battle, she passed away in April 2003 at the age of 42.
