"Together, we will work tirelessly to drive awareness, education, and progress in the field of lung health."
DENVER, CO, November 16, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ -- 1st Class Medical has announced a ground-breaking partnership with both the American Lung Association and COPD Foundation. To celebrate this partnership, 1st Class Medical will be donating $10 to each organization for every concentrator sold in the month of November, which is COPD awareness month.
This collaboration marks a significant milestone in 1st Class Medical's commitment to advancing respiratory health awareness, education, and support for individuals affected by chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other lung conditions.
COPD is an umbrella term that encompasses a group of diseases that cause airflow blockage. The two most prevalent conditions are emphysema and chronic bronchitis. COPD is the 6th leading cause of death in the US. An estimated 16 million Americans have been diagnosed with COPD and it is thought that there could be many millions more that have the disease but have been misdiagnosed or undiagnosed up to this point. As of now there is no cure for COPD but with early diagnoses, proper care, and patient education, a lot can be done to ease symptoms and slow disease progression.
The partnership between 1st Class Medical, The American Lung Association, and The COPD Foundation embodies a shared mission to enhance the lives of those affected by lung diseases by offering comprehensive resources, innovative solutions, and access to critical information. Through this collaboration, 1st Class Medical aims to further its dedication to supporting individuals with respiratory conditions.
It wasn't long ago that oxygen patients had to haul around heavy tanks full of dangerous, pressurized oxygen and were forced to live a fairly sedentary lifestyle. With the advent of portable oxygen concentrators that create medical oxygen by filtering ambient air, oxygen patients are free to travel and continue living full and independent lives. 1st Class Medical has helped more than 40 thousand oxygen patients to maintain their freedom and dignity. Not only are they one of the world's leading distributors of oxygen, they are passionate about empowering respiratory patients to learn to slow disease progression and manage their conditions.
1st Class Medical's Respiratory Blog has been consistently ranked as one of the top resources for respiratory patients. They also offer a host of videos, both on Facebook and YouTube that serve to educate patients on how to slow disease progression, manage symptoms, and maintain, or even improve quality of life.
"We are thrilled to join forces with the American Lung Association and COPD Foundation to amplify our collective impact on respiratory health," said Cory Luckner, Co-Founder of 1st Class Medical. "This collaboration aligns with our core values and commitment to providing exceptional support and resources for individuals affected by respiratory conditions. Together, we will work tirelessly to drive awareness, education, and progress in the field of lung health."
