News and Announcements
The staff and board of The Manitoba Lung Association were saddened to learn of the passing of Linda Cameron. Linda passed away on April 28, 2015 after living courageously with COPD.
We send our condolences to her loving family and many friends.
Linda dedicated many years of tireless work to the cause of improving lung health. She'll be remembered for her positive attitude and for giving back much more than she received. She was a key member and leader in our Better Breathers Support Group and committed to the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program at the Wellness Centre at Seven Oaks General Hospital. She also worked to ensure users of portable oxygen were a priority for Handi-transit.
For several years Linda was the face of our Breath of Spring Tulip Campaign. As well, she participated in several of our media campaigns aimed at raising awareness of COPD and its management.
"She was an advocate," says Sheila McIntosh, The Manitoba Lung Association's Director of Health Initiatives. "Anywhere she went she would tell people about the help available for those with lung health issues."
"You couldn't ask for a better spokesperson."
She will be missed by everyone at The Manitoba Lung Association.
If you or a family member need help coping with COPD, call The Manitoba Lung Association at 1-888-566-5864. Or you can learn more at: https://www.lung.ca/copd
