On Friday 17th. June we had the relaunch of Breathe easy Neath Valley. What a turnout, we had 57 people present from all over the NPT area, There were talks from Dr David Vardill the chest consultant from Neath Port Talbot hospital, who talked about lung desease and what effect it can have on you, also about manageing you condition, he then answered questions on that subject,
Rhianon Kendrick from the COPD team talked about her work and Pulmonary Rehab. Then Joseph Carter, head of BLF Wales talked about the work of the BLF and how it can help all those who have a lung condition. The audience were then treated to me talking about what BE Neath does and how good it is to be a member of this group.
Later in the afternoon Gareth Marsh talked to us about a fascinating sujbject
, The Nos Gallan road races which are help every New Years eve in Mountain Ash to commemorate the life of a man who according to legend is the gratest runner who ever lived. If you are interested in learning more about this just search for Nos gallan and there it will be.
All in all an interesting afternoon.
As you will have realised, I shall continue with the blog, but perhaps not as regularly as my wife did.
