Asthma is not a joke and I personally know why. All my kids had asthma as kids. My sister and I also suffered from asthma as kids. An aunt died of asthma complications. And I had a scary episode with one of my kids because of an asthmatic episode.
Asthma is NOT to be taken lightly.
For these reasons, I am always supportive of campaigns that draw attention to asthma and the importance of early diagnosis and treatment. That is why, as World Asthma Day was being celebrated a few weeks back, I lent my support to GSK’s ASTHMAlaya Campaign.
Here are some things that one must know about asthma. The more we know, the more prepared we will be to recognize it and seek early intervention.
GSK’s campaign. “ASTHMAlaya Ka Ba Talaga?” is an initiative that seeks to encourage asthma patients to be more proactive in consulting their doctors on how to control their asthma better. This campaign is participated in by advocates from the Philippine College of Chest Physicians (PCCP) and the Philippine Society of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology Inc. (PSAAI).
