I understand those machines are very expensive. We reside in NY. The hospital that my Mother in Law is in states that there are only 2 machines in the area.

Hello, I am new to this site. My partner has fungal bronchitis (pencillium) and we are having trouble finding support. Would appreciate support or be able to meet others who are affected by this too. We are both young (mid-late 20's) and we feel really limited by this disease.  Kayla.

Quitting smoking is difficult and many smokers looking to quit may not know where to start. That’s why the American Lung Association and Pfizer have launched Quitter’s Circle, a new multi-platform ‘social’ community anchored by a mobile application, all designed to help address some common smoking cessation challenges.
