Support Groups

Deborah wants to let you know that there are people who know how difficult, anxious and frightening it can be to find out you have cardiac or pulmonary disease.There are people out there who have successfully gone down the same road as you, and are enjoying life to the fullest!

The Zapper Club, the Zipper Club and the Better Breathers Club are groups of people who have gone through the same things you have. They want the same things from life that you do.

The clubs have been formed for you, to support you, and introduce you to others who want to share their stories and experiences. Deborah encourages you and your family and friends to attend all the Club functions. The clubs meets at Deborah Heart and Lung Center. There are no dues or fees required to join the club. Come join us!
