I walk because I have had asthma since I was 3 years old and I'm now 38.  I have always struggled with it and have been to the hospital many times.  I am very blessed that I have 3 very healthy children.  On May 10, 2008 my lungs collapsed and I was on a respirator for 2 weeks and wasn't expected to live.  I pulled through and recovered nicely and I'm very grateful.  My first asthma walk was just a couple of weeks before that happened and I plan to walk each year now and hope to raise money to contribute to this need.
