Asthma Awareness Week 2015 is the 31 August – 6 September with Balloon Day on Friday 4 September. Asthma Awareness week will coincide with the start of spring each year as we know that this is a time when many people struggle with their asthma.
These are the faces of New Zealanders with asthma – help us help them lead a full life.
Have you been wondering ‘What is 52′. At least 52 New Zealanders will die from asthma this year. People are surprised to learn that asthma can kill – many people regard asthma as a mild disease that causes the odd episode of wheezy breathing. For at least 52 families in New Zealand this year, asthma will be tragically memorable.
We need your help to fund research and provide education and support to all New Zealanders with asthma. Please donate generously.
Balloon Day is on Friday 4 September. It is a day where we ask you to help us raise funds to continue our work educating and supporting families and funding research for asthma. Find out more about Balloon Day.
