Please forward this invitation to friends and family. We can also use spectators so try to bring 2-3 people to watch you flash mob!

 

Flash mobs are fun, safe events where people are organized through social media to swarm to a specific location and sing/dance and then quickly disperse. Our flash mob is open to everyone, no matter your dance abilities, singing talent or age!

 

This is an amazing opportunity to participate in a local flash mob for an excellent cause. If you have any questions contact Cynthia Isaacson at cynthia.isaacson@lungmn.org or 651-268-7587.

Lyrics

Hey Man, we think you should know,

I said, Hey Man, this is important don’t go,

I said, Hey Man, it’s for women and men

If you wheeze, cough or get breathless.

 

Chronic, Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

I said, Chronic, Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

It’s preventable and treatable if you please

But you need to see your doctor

 

I want to hear you say, C-O-P-D

3rd leading cause of death, C-O-P-D

 

12 million diagnosed, 12 million more don’t know

Join me now so awareness grows…….

 

C-O-P-D

3rd leading cause of death, C-O-P-D

 

Our numbers are large, but we’re here to tell you

There is something that you can do

 

Smoking, causes 80%

And so cessation, is the way to prevent

Throw away your cigarettes, get a spirometry test

And put C-O-P-D to rest

 

Flu shots, help you not get so sick

And inhalers, often help do the trick

Try some exercise, it will help keep you strong

Now hear me, Just don’t wait too long

 

I want to hear you say, C-O-P-D

3rd leading cause of death, C-O-P-D

 

12 million diagnosed, 12 million more don’t know

Join me now so awareness grows…….

 

C-O-P-D

3rd leading cause of death, C-O-P-D

 

Our numbers are large, but we’re here to tell you

There is something that you can do

 

Rehab, is the place you should go

To learn all that, you really should know

You’ll find that you, wish you would have been told

So you could have gone there sooner

 

American, Lung Association

I said American, Lung Association

Has support groups, called Better Breather Clubs

That help you learn, cope and meet others

 

I want to hear you say, C-O-P-D

3rd leading cause of death, C-O-P-D

 

12million people have it, 12 million more don’t know

Join me now so awareness grows…….
