Patient Stories

This is where we share YOUR stories.   Each month we will be posting a story from someone with asthma, or from a family member, friend or fundraiser.   We want to hear all different types of stories. Tell us about: 
 
  • The good times - has your child has done well at sport, or received outstanding marks at school?
  • The frustrating parts - has your child had to face additional challenges because of their asthma or struggled to get the support they needed to reach their full potential?
  • The sad moments - has your child missed out on things they enjoy, have they spent time in hospital or had their lives tragically cut short due to asthma?
  • Your event - what you are doing to raise funds for the Asthma Society of Ireland, and what motivated you to support ASI?
