Although there are still many things I have yet to say about managing
your portable oxygen, I want you to know there are others who continue
watching out for you.

There are five who wrote with great understanding and feeling that
greatly influenced me. I will introduce each of them during the coming
Bill Horden (May 1, 1929 - March 30, 2003)
Bill Horden is still known as the "COPD Advocate." He was diagnosed
with COPD and started writing long before I received my diagnosis.
Having never before had to manage a medical problem or the equipment
necessary to sustain me, I floundered about looking for advice. In the
world of the 1990s and the state of the Internet during that decade,
there was nothing available at the patient level until I came across
his article "Patience, Patients," in which he helped me better
communicate with my medical team, and "The COPD Survival Kit," which
raised my spirits, as it will yours.
I commend to you Bill
