Coming soonBreathing is Life with helps and hints for patients,  families and medical workers from a chronically healthy nurse who went to work one day and was discharged from the hospital a week later with an oxygen tank in tow.

In the wake of a personal,  life-smacking medical crisis, Liz Bucar,  a rural nurse in under-served, health-challenged Sullivan County, NY,  created Breathing Is Life where she and others with chronic diagnoses can learn, advocate together and contribute to improving  health factors and outcomes in our villages, hamlets, neighborhoods and homes.

Don’t forget to bring your hints, helps and advocacy to the  Breathing Is Life Forum when it’s up and running!
