Ersilia is an Italian patient from Rome who suffers from chronic respiratory problems since the age of 28. After many years of battling alone against disease, she met Giulia, a pulmonary physiotherapist who has helped her get the best of her lungs. Ersilia now can do things she had given up to due to COPD and that “is really important and extremely gratifying” for her.
