Nanticoke Memorial Hospital holds Better Breathers Club meetings on Mondays from 2 pm to 3 pm in the Nursing Conference Room. This free support group is open to anyone affected by a chronic lung disease including relatives and caregivers.

Chronic lung diseases make it difficult to breathe. There are several types of chronic lung disease: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), asthma, bronchitis, cystic and pulmonary fibrosis, pulmonary hypertension, sarcoidosis, and lung cancer. In the United States, COPD is the third-leading cause of death and lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths. Smoking is the primary cause for both of these diseases. Thankfully, many forms of chronic lung disease are preventable and medically manageable.

Backed by the American Lung Association, the Better Breathers Club offers a venue for participants to learn from guest speakers and educational materials, socialize with others affected by a chronic lung disease, and practice skills that will help them better manage their condition and improve their quality of life. Registration is required.

For more information or to register, please call 302-629-6611, extension 1010. To learn more about pulmonary services at Nanticoke, visit www.nanticoke.org/pulmonary.
