Jack Sheffield videoA Speare Success Story: Jack Sheffield

Hiking, downhill skiing, snowshoeing, landscaping, boating, cutting/splitting/stacking firewood or walking his dog, Piper. This is John “Jack” Sheffield’s New Hampshire lifestyle and one he and his wife, Sally, fully embrace. About four years ago Jack started to notice he needed to stop and catch his breath when hiking or skiing. At the recommendation of his doctor he followed up with a pulmonologist and was diagnosed with COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder).

Then a couple of years ago Jack suffered a collapsed lung. X-rays reveled he had spots on his lungs. While closely monitored, in November 2013 Jack had to have a lobectomy, removing the lobe in his upper right lung and dimishishing his lung capacity by 20 percent.

This is his success story…
