Give to asthma research to stop asthma killing children like Ned
On Boxing Day five years ago, healthy and vibrant 14-year-old Ned had an asthma attack that killed him. Please donate now towards asthma research to help prevent asthma attacks in children like Ned.
Ned was diagnosed with asthma when he was about two years old. His mum Kristy thought his asthma was mild and under control. Before that terrible night, Ned had never been to hospital due to his asthma. It had never stopped him playing football, riding his horse or his motorbike.
Ned’s mum still can’t believe he’s gone.
Kristy put it this way: “it is an illness that people can live with all their lives but then one asthma attack can take someone’s life at any age. So we need funding for more life-saving research for more awareness and more education.”
While it’s too late for Ned, exciting new research may help other children. Dr Paul Robinson from the Westmead hospital is researching the early detection and monitoring of poor asthma control and early detection of asthma attacks. The new home-based monitoring approach could improve the management of asthma in children. And help them avoid going to hospital, and may prevent fatal asthma attacks.
Please donate to asthma research to stop asthma killing people you love.
