Success Story

II have gradually awakened back to the world that was stolen from me due to my severe asthma. I received bronchial thermoplasty and my health improved so much I am able to start gardening again. I can now sit outside and engage with my family. I can cook a meal without going into an asthma attack. I still have days when my asthma flares, but it is easily managed with inhalers. When I was really sick with my asthma I took lots of prednisone. It affected my bones and I had to have foot surgery. That’s when I realized Prednisone affects more than just the lungs!

When I needed more treatment for my lungs, Allergy & Asthma Network fought to keep me alive. I will always be forever grateful to Tonya. I have met some great new friends – Mary and Cara - from the Network who are true warriors searching for a cure for asthma and assuring patient voices are being heard. Thank you!!
