A number of celebrities have relatives who are COPD patients. Many have joined Danica Patrick in the Drive4COPD campaign to raise awareness about the disease and the need for early detection. Team members include actor and comedian Jim Belushi, Olympian Bruce Jenner, American country singer Patty Loveless, and former NFL football player Michael Strahan. Belushi lost his father, who was a heavy smoker, to COPD. In a TV interview, Belushi says he hopes the COPD celebrity campaign will encourage millions to get screened for COPD.
