Message from Jane Wallingford, Volunteer Board Member
"I know about the importance of The Lung Association's work first hand. My daughter, Tara, has had asthma since she was two. When she was a young teen she suffered a severe asthmatic episode and had to be airlifted to a hospital that could treat her. The Lung Association gave us the help and support we needed to help Tara better manage her asthma and improve her quality of life. Please, support The Lung Association today. Thank you."
