Thank you for supporting the Rehoboth LUNG FORCE Walk. I am fundraising because I have severe asthma. My asthma limits many of my activities and has caused me to miss weeks of school every school year. In a typical year, I am hospitalized with severe asthma episodes about 3 times a year, which is scary. Because of the current COVID-19 pandemic, I am at an increased risk of severe COVID complications, so my parents have had to keep my strictly quarantined since March. I miss playing soccer, going to school, and playing with my friends.
I am fundraising because the money I raise helps the American Lung Association invest in prevention and treatment options for lung disease as well as funding research to find a cure! I hope that one day, I can live in a world where I don't have to struggle to breathe. THANK YOU for helping me fund a cure.
