Yes! I want to support people with asthma

Despite the amazing progress with preventers and relievers, there’s still no cure for asthma.  But every day, our researchers are getting closer to finding a cure.  Your donation today will fund vital research and education to help halve the number of avoidable hospital presentations from asthma by 2030. Thank you!

All donations over $2 are tax deductible.

Asthma put Jasmine in hospital at Christmas

- Jasmine, 40, asthma sufferer and mum-of-three

 

It should have been an  amazing Christmas  for Jasmine.

Jasmine  and  her husband Pete had just brought their newborn twins Leo and  Eliza, home and they were looking forward to spending Christmas together, along with their son Charlie. 

“When Pete said he was calling an ambulance for me, I cried  and said ‘no’. I  didn’t want to be away from my babies.” 

At hospital, Jasmine was put in isolation. Doctors gave her oxygen, a fast-acting reliever medicine, antibiotics  and steroids to bring her asthma under control.

By Christmas Eve, Jasmine’s asthma had barely improved. Waking up alone in hospital the next morning was the saddest moment yet. It felt so unfair.

Jasmine should have been cuddling her babies, taking Charlie for a ride on his new trike  and enjoying a Christmas roast with family. But instead, she was  sick in hospital, in isolation – recovering from her asthma attack and pneumonia.

This year, more than 100 Australians will  spend Christmas Day in hospital due to asthma. But we know that about 80% of asthma hospital admissions can be avoided.

By  making a donation, you will help provide life-saving asthma education to help keep people like Jasmine out of hospital this Christmas.

With your  kind gift, we can ensure everyone can access an Asthma Educator by phoning our free 1800 ASTHMA information line. There they can  ask questions and receive  possibly life-saving  personalised asthma information.
