May is National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month. We hope you will join us in our efforts to raise awareness about asthma and allergies. More than 26 million people in the US with asthma and about 6 million are children under the age of 18. Sadly, in the US, there are still 10 deaths per day due to asthma, and most of those fatalities are preventable. Together we can educate others about the seriousness of asthma.
