May is Asthma Awareness Month

Raising Awareness About Asthma

Today, more than 25 million people in America have asthma—including more than 7 million kids. Asthma is the third leading cause of hospitalization among children under the age of 15 and is a leading cause of school absences.

That’s why this May—Asthma Awareness Month—the American Lung Association has set out to bring greater awareness of this disease. We’re helping to make sure people with asthma have access to the information and resources they need to manage their asthma to live active, healthy lives.

Asthma Facts

Asthma is a chronic lung disease that makes it difficult to breathe.

Asthma can start at any age.

Allergies, respiratory infections and exposure to environmental toxins (e.g., allergens, irritants, air pollution, secondhand smoke, etc.) can worsen asthma.

Asthma can be life threatening.

There is no cure for asthma, but it can be managed so people with the disease can live a normal, healthy life.

How Can You Help?

•   Join our nationwide Asthma Call-In Day today, May 8, and tell your elected officials in Washington how important the National Asthma Control Program at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is to people with asthma.

•   Share these resources with someone you know who is living with asthma.

•   Your help makes programs and resources like these available for those with lung disease, such as asthma. If you haven’t already, please consider making a matching gift made possible by our dedicated volunteers and staff. Your donation will be matched dollar for dollar up to $60,000, but time is limited. This opportunity expires May 20.

We appreciate your continued support.
