Living with Oxygen Therapy - Inspirational Stories and Images

Here are the inspirational stories from our oxygen therapy users. They are just as strong and free-spirited as they ever were and didn't know the meaning of giving up what makes them happy. They use portable oxygen concentrators to get around while getting the oxygen therapy they need.

We have put together inspiring oxygen stories and images directly from our customers. The stories include hiking at 6700 feet in Glacier National Park in Montana to Zip-lining in North Carolina to hiking Buzzard Roost; Ohio’s most spectacular view.

Susan's Story with an Oxygen Concentrator

"Going to the zoo always means walking long distances to see the best exhibits and nothing could stop me when I carried my oxygen with me. I had COPD/Emphysema and as a retired Park Ranger/Natural Resource Specialist. It was my job to monitor our black bear population at our park. When I had to go to Duke Hospital to prepare for the transplant, I took my family and spent time with the animals at the Durham Life & Science Museum to enjoy my days waiting."

"I had COPD, and with my oxygen, I was floating on air. The photo was taken just before I jumped from a platform on a zip-line and soared through the trees. Only what every disabled park ranger should be allowed to do!"
