The following pieces explore a range of conditions that affect the lungs such as inflammation, viruses, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and asthma, as well as the medications that are used to treat them.

These works primarily explore the lives of two individuals affected by some of these conditions. Focusing on recent events, we explore their experiences of living with these conditions, the struggles of getting their medications as well as the events that led to their diagnoses and need for the medicine in the first place.
