Our Pulmonary Patients: Eleanor

Published on Saturday, November 28, 2015
Eleanor has Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: "I loved every cigarette I had; but one day I couldn’t breathe, and I ended up in the hospital. I’d done a lot of damage to my lungs. Coming to Pulmonary Rehab has been one of the best things I’ve done for myself. You can just feel that everyone here, therapists and patients alike, really care about you. We’re all in the same boat. I’m never going to run a marathon, but the workout I get here helps me just deal with life. I’ve learned how to cope with the fact that my lungs can’t draw in as much air anymore. This program is what keeps most of us going."
