My story

[p]Every 10 seconds someone in the UK has a potentially fatal asthma attack[/p][p]Every single day, the lives of 3 families are devastated by the death of a loved one from asthma[/p][p]Tragically, the majority of these deaths could be prevented with the right basic care. However, others still suffer with asthma so severe that current treatments don't work. This HAS to change...[/p][p]Having had asthma all my life, and have parents who also suffer- Asthma UK is a charity close to my heart.[/p][p]I started having asthma between the age of 9-12 months, but one of my earliest recollections of it being particularly bad was when I was about 6 and had an asthma attack. I don't remember much but remember shouting "Mummy I need my yellow asthma drink" (this was my asthma medicine) and the next thing I knew was that I was in hospital on a nebuliser. From then on, I have had a wide variety of treatments including more nebulisers, steroid treatment and inhalers. To keep my asthma under control I still have to take 2-3 types of inhaler daily, especially now I'm running in the cold British winter![/p][p]At school I always hated PE, and would use the 'excuse' of having asthma to get out of it at any given opportunity. I was the one who would struggle through the first half lap of cross-country, go and hide, and then get my class mates to tell me when it was the final half lap... With this in mind, I thought "What's the best way for someone who sometimes struggles to breathe and hates running to raise some money? Oh yeah... how about run a marathon?!"[/p][p]So here goes... [/p][p]I'm running the 2018 London Marathon as a personal challenge - it's something I'd always said I'd want to do but never thought I would; and to promote the fantastic work that Asthma UK do...[/p][p]Fund world class asthma research[/p][p]Campaign to improve the quality of care recieved by people with asthma[/p][p]Help hundreds of thousands of people a year with their expert advice and support[/p][p][br][/p][p]To find out more about Asthma UK, please visit www.asthma.org.uk[/p][p][br][/p][p]Thank you for donating, Louise XXXX[/p][p][br][/p]
