Breath Savers is committed to providing education, support and social activities
for individuals who have lung disease.
The supervisor of Pulmonary Rehabilitation is the Breath Savers advisor.
The club's organization also includes an Executive Board, committee
members and many dedicated volunteers.
Out and About
Besides monthly meetings, the club plans several trips throughout the year
to encourage our members to get out of the house and enjoy life. Some
of these outings have included Laughlin, Nev., a harbor cruise in San
Pedro, concerts, picnics, ice cream socials and bingo parties. At the
end of each year we have a holiday gift exchange and musical entertainment program.
