Michelle lost her sister, Tiffany, when she died from asthma in 2014. Tragically, Tiffany had suffered her first-ever exercise-induced asthma attack.
After the devastating loss of her sister, Michelle and her family wanted to make sure that no other family had to lose a loved one like their family did.
Michelle and her family now raise awareness about asthma and support AAFA because of AAFA’s mission to improve the lives of people with asthma and allergic diseases through education, advocacy and research.
You, too, can join in our efforts to educate adults, teens and the families of children regarding the best ways to manage their asthma. Tragically, nearly 10 people a day die from asthma in the U.S. And although some can’t be prevented, like Tiffany’s, many asthma deaths are avoidable with proper treatment and care.
With your help, we can hopefully reduce the number deaths due to asthma – a condition that affects one in 6 children and adults nationwide.
Every donation, no matter how small, counts to in our efforts to raise awareness about the serious nature of asthma and to educate and support people living with asthma.
