Erin M., TN

I am 13 and I have asthma so, just the littlest things can cause me to become sick and not able to breathe.

If I'm not able to fight off a stuffy or runny nose within a week or so, I will have bronchitis and pneumonia, and it keeps getting worse. When I was a baby, I had such a bad asthma attack that the doctors said I would be dead by morning. So I'm fighting for air, for every kid with asthma, so we don't have to worry about asthma attacks as much.
