Glen Scrimshaw, Robert Bateman, Yvonne Kdd & Val Moker donate works of art to The Lung Association!

Regina, February 14 - Four renowned artists, Glen Scrimshaw, Robert Bateman, Yvonne Kydd and Val Moker, have teamed up with The Lung Association to promote lung health for our residents.

 

The ArtWorks for Lung Health Campaign is limited to supporters of The Lung Association.  It is an opportunity for our Board of Directors and Staff to thank the many people who have given to The Lung Association by inviting them to participate in a draw for four spectacular pieces of art.  No donation or payment of any kind is necessary to participate, although we do invite our donors to renew their support to The Lung Association.  In Saskatoon on April 24, 2006 four entries will be drawn randomly from all entries.

Every year many of our residents suffer from lung diseases such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, sleep apnea, and lung cancer.   One out of every three people in Saskatchewan will be affected by lung disease during their lifetime. Respiratory disease is the number one cause of hospitalization of infants and children and the number two cause of hospitalization of seniors in Saskatchewan

The Lung Association is committed to protecting the lung health of the people of Saskatchewan.  With the generous support of the public and the help of our volunteers, we have seen many advances against lung disease and have developed programs and services for our residents.  You will find The Lung Association, the premier source for respiratory health initiatives in the province, active in your community conducting programs on asthma, COPD and sleep apnea, providing training for health professionals, delivering health education in our schools, and facilitating patient support groups and lobbying for clean air. Please visit our website at www.sk.lung.ca/artworks for more information on the ArtWorks For Lung Health Campaign, our artists and their work and www.sk.lung.ca to learn more about The Lung Association.
