Six years ago, Lisa Kelly went to see her doctor about a chronic cough. She learned she has severe uncontrolled asthma. With her doctor’s help, she has since tried various treatments to manage her asthma. They have each helped for a little while, but not as much as she would like.

In 2017, she discovered the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America's (AAFA) online community. She met other people with severe uncontrolled asthma, and with their support and accountability, her asthma control is getting better.

“I’m doing a lot better since I found the AAFA community,” shared Lisa. “The people on the AAFA forums have definitely helped me better understand my asthma and take steps to reduce the chance of a flare.”

“Everyone is so encouraging and helpful,” she shared. “There have been times I don’t know what I would have done without everyone there.”
