Breathing support group plans spring event Wednesday

ASHTABULA — Spring is in the air, and so is dust, grass, pollen and more. If you suffer from breathing difficulties such as COPD or asthma, you do not have to struggle alone.

Get to know others with similar conditions at a special May 7 spring meeting of Better Breathers Group, hosted by Ashtabula County Medical Center. Also meet with representatives from Pharmacy, Pulmonary Rehabilitation, respiratory, and Premier fitness. Enjoy a variety of refreshments, prize giveaways and more. The event is from 2 to 3 p.m.

“Too many times people feel like they are the only one suffering. The Better Breathers Group’s message is: You are not alone, and you have support from others going through what you are experiencing,” said Certified Respiratory Su-pervisor Melissa Shanley.

Each month, group members get encouragement, learn disease-specific health information and support each other through discussion and emotional support.

The Better Breathers Group meets the first Wednesday of every month from 2 to 3 p.m. in the Education Building, across from the hospital, on Rogers Place.

Monthly meetings are free and open to anyone with breathing difficulties.

For more information phone 440-997-6696.
