    The American Lung Association's Annual Asthma Walk is coming up quickly. It is a great way to reach out to your community and raises funds that go to further research to fight lung disease, teach children how to properly use their inhalers, and educate the public about the varied aspects of lung disease.

    If you want to lend a hand, join a team, or lead your own head over to the Asthma Walk website at

    Every little bit helps to win the fight against lung disease. Thank you for your help!

    We agree! The Asthma Walk is a great way to raise money and awareness, and that's why we participated in Atlanta's Asthma Walk on April 29, 2006. See our May achoo! Review newsletter for pictures from the Asthma Walk, and please keep us updated about future events!”
