Chest Medicine

Nothing wins like persistence. Perseverance has a power that envelopes within it the secret of life. Had it not been for the consistent string of breathing, the instrument called body would never have met the music of life. The keys that lie behind this string are our ‘Lungs’, the epitomes of persistence.
