My grandfather passed away from lung cancer in 1994. I remember vividly watching him as his sickness took it's toll on him. I was really young and I didn't quite understand what lung cancer was but I remember thinking how horrible it was to watch him. In 2002, his wife, my grandmother passed away as well. She had suffered from emphysema for years. I can remember her using breathing treatments and her coughing all the time. It was sad to see her suffer. I miss them both very much, they impacted my life in a way that I will never forget.
This past year my daughter who is only 2 years old began getting bronchitis over and over again. We noticed a wheezing when she would breathe. Then finally the doctor's prescribed a nebulizer. The memory of my grandmother flashed in my head as I had to give my little girl breathing treatments. As the first of April arrived I had noticed my daughter laboring breathing. I ended up giving her two breathing treatments before taking her to the ER. She had her first asthma attack and I had no clue what to do or expect. I was so scared for her. After spending 4 days in the hospital trying to get her oxygen levels maintained we were able to come home. I don't want this to happen to her again.
I am participating in memory of my grandparents and to be proactive in my daughter's health. Please help me in this cause. No donation is too small, please consider donating, participating, or volunteering for the Fight for Air climb/5k.
