COPD Challenger

Patient Leader

My name is John Cummings. I was diagnosed with asthma when I was twelve: however, I was able to have a fairly healthy adolescence playing sports and doing what most teens do. In my last year in high school, I began to be gravely sick with a few episodes of pneumonia. My doctors and I have learned through the years that the pneumonia and youth asthma prompted perpetual scarring of the lungs and a sickness called bronchiectasis. At this point with my disease I choose to spread the word about my experiences and to serve as a model for those you are newly diagnosed with COPD.
