Many of our Social Security disability clients have some form of lung disease. One of the best resources for information about all the many types of lung disease is the American Lung Association. From the Web site:
The mission of the American Lung Association® is to prevent lung disease and promote lung health.
The American Lung Association® is the oldest voluntary health organization in the United States, with a National Office and constituent and affiliate associations around the country. Founded in 1904 to fight tuberculosis, the American Lung Association® today fights lung disease in all its forms, with special emphasis on asthma, tobacco control and environmental health. The American Lung Association® is funded by contributions from the public, along with gifts and grants from corporations, foundations and government agencies. The American Lung Association® achieves its many successes through the work of thousands of committed volunteers and staff.
