Coming soon! Breathing Is Legal 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 Legal where she and others with chronic diagnoses can learn, advocate together, charm readers with oxygen humor 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 Legal Forum when it’s up and running!
