You ask a very good question.  Why do I complete the Blow the Whistle on Asthma Walk each year?  A simple answer is "Because I still can".  You see I am a survivor of childhood asthma and endured the hours of tests, shots, and the feeling of never being able to breath again during bouts with illnesses.  I survived the weeks in hospitals, first as a four year old scared little man, and last time as a sophomore high school student missing out on sports, dating and other school events.  Now, if I can generate a dollar or two to find a cure so that not one more child has to go through that, well I need to complete that effort.  Pure and simple, I need to make sure we find that cure today.
