No one should struggle to breathe. That is why I am walking in the Fight For Air Walk.
As a mother of a child with chronic asthma I learned just how important this cause really is. You never really take the time to think about the very things we take advantage of, such as breathing, until someone you love is personally affected. From six moths old Ava has used inhalers, or puffers as well as a nebulizer machine to help control her asthma. The hardest thing I have experienced was watching her struggle to breath during an attack. Ava will hopefully grow out of her puffers, or at least not have to do daily treatments, but many like her never will, and that breaks my heart. Not only for them but for their families who have to experience their struggle with them.
Several years ago we lost my grandfather in a long and hard fought battle with COPD. I remember growing up around him slowly watching him using the "tank" more and more until it never left his side. I am doing this walk to support those like my grandfather and my daughter Ava who is still fighting to breath easily.
Asthma is the number one cause for school absenteeism and every day in this country at least 10 people die from an asthma attack, thus it is important that we provide disease management education to children when they are 8, 9 or 10 years old. Lung Cancer is the leading cause of cancer death globally and is woefully under funded when it comes to research, thus is essential that we generate the awareness needed to increase resources for advanced research projects. The average age for American's to start a smoking habit is 14, thus it is critical that we get into the elementary schools and teach children about the dangers of tobacco use early.
Please either join me and register for the walk or make a generous donation to the American Lung Association to support our FIGHT FOR AIR. EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS AND NO DONATION IS TOO SMALL!
Thank you for joining this important 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.
