The COPD Foundation would like to express our heartfelt condolences to Patti Everly and her family on the loss of her husband, Phil Everly. We are grateful to them for extending his legacy by making a commitment to support our efforts to eradicate this disease. We are motivated by their support to continue to make progress through research to ultimately find a cure for COPD, so individuals such as Phil will not have to suffer.

Phil passed away Friday, January 3, 2014 in Burbank, Calif. at the age of 74 due to complications from COPD. The Everly family would like contributions to be made in memory of Phil to the COPD Foundation, to help us fight this terrible disease.

According to the LATimes.com, Phil Everly and his brother Don made up the most revered vocal duo of the rock-music era, their exquisite harmonies profoundly influencing the Beatles, the Beach Boys, the Byrds and countless younger-generation rock, folk and country singers.

Phil Everly was born in Chicago, IL on January 19, 1939, but grew up in Iowa. He began singing country music with his brother in 1945 on his family's radio show in Shenandoah, Iowa. Notable songs of the Everly Brothers was "Cathy's Clown", "Wake up Little Susie", "Bye Bye Love", "When Will I Be Loved", and "All I Have to Do is Dream". The Everly Brothers were inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame in 1986, and were known for mixing rock 'n' roll music with country music. Phil Everly last performed in public in 2011, but his son Jason said he had been actively writing songs, living part of the year in Burbank and the rest in Nashville. He said his father had been in the hospital for about two weeks when he passed away. Though the COPD caused by smoking affected his health, Jason Everly said it never affected his voice. Everly married his third wife Patti (current wife) in 1999. His 2 children are from previous marriages.

The Everly family thanks you for your support in memory of their angel.

Hello staff of the foundation,

As many people in the USA already did I think, made their donation with PayPal...

For many people around the world who will donate, it's not Always possible to do that with PayPal.

Therefor I'd like to suggest; Please mention the bank number and this including the IBAN number and BIC-code.

Than all people can make a donation to your lovely foundation with this beautiful caracter.

Thank you for your work in this.

With regards from Jolanda Schippers the Netherlands.

Just popping by to remind everyone how huge the fight against COPD is. We hear so much about funding raising for other diseases we must never forget this killer too. I suspect in todays world we may see new types of COPD related to smoking MJ- kids forget about those risks.

I would just like to say I am trained in both medical and stop smoking fields. I cannot offer a cure, but I can offer hope. If you would like to talk send me a private message. I was a 4 pack a day smoker. Have been free and no problems since 1989.
