Dear Family and Friends,
On Saturday April 21st I will be participating in the Fight for Air Climb. I will be climbing 43.7 floors and running a 5k. The number one reason I will be doing this climb is for the American Lung Association. As you may or may not know I was diagnosed with asthma at a young age. I have been fighting this disease my whole life. Not being able to breathe is one of the worst feelings in the world. It is also very scary when it is not being controlled in the proper ways. I have had many asthma attacks in my life. The worst one was 5 days long of not being able to breath, and it felt like someone was sitting on my chest. It made me feel like giving up on breathing. If I didn't stay calm it would only get worse. There was a variety of options I tried to open my air ways, which included taking my nebulizer for 20 min every hour, taking hot showers, taking my inhaler and breathing in steam from boiling water over the stove. After struggling for air for 5 days I finally took a normal breath. It was a huge relief to breathe again and I have not experienced this severe of an asthma attack since. I am very grateful for this. I am a very active person. Running and lifting weights is part of my daily routine. In order to perform any physical activity I have to take my inhaler 2 times before. Depending on the season I sometimes have to take my inhaler before, between and after. I will not let this disease control my life. Still at 22 years old I fight for air every day. I want to show people that even if you have asthma you can still live an active and healthy life style. This is why I climb!
The other reason I will be participating is to try to raise as much money as I can for the American Lung Association.Please either join my team(Asthma Attackers) and register for the climb or make a generous donation(any dollar amount) to the the American Lung Association. All proceeds go to fighting for healthy lungs, fighting for healthy air, fighting for cures and fighting for a world free of lung disease.
Thank you for your support and generosity. Most importantly thanks for joining the fight for children with asthma, teens who are pressured to start smoking, people with lung cancer and emphysema, and everyone who wants to breathe healthy air in our communities.
