I've worked with 7 people who have stage 4 COPD.(end stage) Two have died and they didn't have an easy time of it. One of them had keept on smoking, and was the first to go. Three have all fought the problem with Rehab, staying away from any type smoke or people who might bring germs with them Ect. With luck they may live a decient life for another few years. The other two just sit around waiting to die. HOW SAD. 0>:-( PS/ I should add. All but one of them were smokers. The non-smoker is one of them in rehab and may live the longest. 0>:-)
