'Mark's Breathe Easy Tour' Inspires Those with Chronic Lung Disease to

Enjoy Life

SAN DIEGO, July 24 /PRNewswire/ -- SeQual Technologies Inc. (SeQual) announced today the launch of "Mark's Breathe Easy Tour," a SeQual-sponsored initiative in partnership with the American Lung Association of California and Seton Medical Center intended to raise awareness of chronic lung disease, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). "Mark's Breathe Easy Tour" will spotlight COPD survivor and cyclist Mark Junge as he bikes from San Francisco to Tijuana, Mexico, proving that a disease or impairment should not hinder you from enjoying life. Over the course of his twelve-day ride, covering more than 500 miles of California Coast, Junge hopes to inspire oxygen-dependent people to continue living their lives using perseverance and today's medical technology.

"Mark's Breathe Easy Tour" will follow 65-year-old Junge on his 538-mile journey on a bike retrofitted with the Eclipse(R) 2 Personal Ambulatory Oxygen System(TM) (PAOS), a portable oxygen concentrator. Junge, a retired historian, writer and photographer from Cheyenne, Wyoming, suffers from blood clots in his lungs which has caused him to become oxygen-dependent. Therefore, everyday Mark uses supplementary oxygen, mainly for physical tasks such as walking and exercising, so he can continue his active lifestyle.

Chronic lung disease, such as COPD, is a common, but treatable, disorder. According to the American Lung Association of California, more than 12.1 million American adults are estimated to have COPD.
