Rosie Cooper MP

Working hard for the people of West Lancashire

10/11/10 MP Rosie’s support for British Lung Foundation campaign

West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper met with the Chair of West Lancs and Southport Breathe Easy Group, Irene Norman, to show her support for the British Lung Foundation 2010 Manifesto and the Children’s Charter to raise awareness of how many people are affected by lung disease.
 
The British Lung Foundation 2010 Manifesto calls on the Government to meet nine specific challenges in respect of lung disease. The Children’s Charter outlines the British Lung Foundation’s campaigning priorities to improve children’s lung health.
 
MP Rosie said;
 
“One person in seven in this country is affected by lung disease at some stage during their life and respiratory conditions are still the most commonly reported illness in children and babies. This shows that the British Lung Foundation is right in challenging the Government to do more in respect of lung disease and meet specific goals.
 
“I am grateful to Irene for keeping me updated with the campaigns of the British Lung Foundation and I know of the tremendous work that the Breathe Easy support network does across West Lancashire in providing support for people who live with a lung condition day in, day out.
 
“I know from personal experience how lung disease can affect people and their families. As such, I will continue supporting and raising awareness of the work done by West Lancs and Southport Breathe Easy Group.”
 
Irene Norman said;
 
“I am delighted that Rosie was able to meet with me and show support for the British Lung Foundation Manifesto and the Children’s Charter. With eight million people affected by lung disease it is vital that the Government works to improve care for those people.”
