TORONTO, Nov. 17 /CNW/ - The following b-roll and 30-second CANADIAN LUNG ASSOCIATION PSA (video and audio) are available by Broadcast On-Demand web download:

STORY SUMMARY: Celebrated Canadian comedian and actress Mary Walsh is using her voice to raise awareness about Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) for this year's World COPD campaign. Walsh is best known for her work on the acclaimed TV show This Hour Has 22 Minutes. Walsh is encouraging Canadians to participate in the Coast2Coast Challenge. Visit www.teamcopd.ca for more information on COPD.

COPD, Canada's fourth leading cause of death, is on the rise. COPD includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis. It is growing in prevalence among younger Canadian baby boomers. In fact, according to research by The Lung Association, one in seven Canadians aged 45 to 49 may currently be living with COPD, and many more may be unaware they even have it. The earlier you are diagnosed, the earlier you can begin to manage COPD and get back to doing the things you always enjoyed doing. The Telecaster PSA number is AXTWABBY-1010/P.
