Message from the President & CEO
We hope all of you had a wonderful holiday season! Despite the cold weather, we hope you are getting outside to enjoy some winter activities and exercise those lungs!
Just a reminder that if you have lung health issues, you want to take some precautions when you go outside in the cold air. Check out our tips in the newsletter.
National Non Smoking week was last month, and we want to remind everyone that its never too late to quit! This past November, we had 200 people sign up for our Quit Cold Turkey challenge, and we had over 60 people who were able to stay smoke-free for 30 days! Although it takes many people multiple attempts to quit smoking, the key is to never give up trying! We're so proud of everyone in our group that was able to quit!
We would like to remind families that registration for Camp Treasure Chest is now open! If you have a child in your family that is age 7-18, and they suffer from asthma, anaphylaxis or any other lung condition, Camp Treasure Chest is an amazing summer camp experience, where kids can get away from worrying about their illness and just enjoy being kids! This year is the 30th year, the Lung Association of Nova Scotia has been offering this camp.
I hope you enjoy the rest of this beautiful Spring season, breathing in our wonderful, fresh, Maritime air!
Yours in lung health,
-Robert MacDonald, President & CEO
Lung Association of Nova Scotia
