Breathing A Little Easier With The AAFA

Have you had a cough that just wouldn't go away? Have ya felt tightness in your chest that made it hard for you to breathe? Did you know that five million kids in the United States have to deal with these asthma-related effects everyday? Take a look at how the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America is helping to breathe new life into some under-privileged communities in America.

Who Knew? Asthma Facts

  • The number one reason for peeps missin' school is asthma.
  • Everyday in America, 14 people die from asthma-related illnesses, usually because they haven't received proper treatment.
  • African-American males are twice as likely to die from asthma than the rest of the American population.

    The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA)

    The AAFA started a project in 1995 to bring medical treatment to communities in Southern California that probably couldn't afford proper medication for their asthma. Today there are four Breathmobiles that service the Los Angeles area, providing physical examinations, free medication and much more, to over 100 LA schools.

    Peeps Behind The Asthma Cause

    Grammy Award winning rapper, Coolio, grew up in Compton, California and knows what it's like to suffer from asthma. That's why he's lent his vocal talents to many AAFA public service announcements urging kids like you to get treatment for your asthma. Click here to hear what Coolio has to say!
