Helping patients regain their ‘normal’
As part of our dedication to this effort, we have launched Asthma in Real Life, a multi-faceted educational initiative designed to elevate the conversation around asthma. By highlighting personal stories and tactics used to manage and control asthma symptoms, we are celebrating patients who find ways to enjoy more of the real-life things they love to do – in essence sharing how they live every breath.
Searching for a solution – Sarah’s perspective
“Throughout my life, I have struggled with managing my asthma. In elementary school, it was gym class that created tightness in my chest; by junior high tightness turned into having periodic fits of uncontrollable coughing. It was not until high school, during a routine checkup that my doctor heard a cough and asked how long I’d had been doing that. ‘Years, I think,’ I replied.
Today, memories of elementary, high school and college feel distant and I’m thankful that I’ve found a solution that keeps my symptoms under control.
