Exercise DVD Available For COPD Sufferers
Exercise DVD Available For COPD Sufferers Television personality Angela Rippon is fronting a new DVD that will help patients suffering from the lung disease Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). The DVD called Move On Up will be available in GP surgeries.

COPD includes a range of lung diseases like chronic bronchitis and emphysema. "Exercise is something that can really make a difference to the lives of people living with COPD, so I am delighted to be taking part in this project," Rippon said. "I hope it will raise awareness of the disease and that this simple exercise DVD will help many people with COPD to live more fulfilling and active lives."

A recent Cancer Research UK survey had found that many Britons were unaware that they were suffering from COPD.

Can you obtain the Move on up DVD from anywhere else? I found the Breathing Matters booklet very helpful
