EveryoneBreathe.com, Asthma Resources for Your Child

mary-joe-fernandezIt’s allergy season again, which means your child may be experiencing watery and itchy eyes, sneezing, coughing, wheezing, and exacerbated asthma. According to Bill McLin, President and CEO of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), “asthma affects nearly seven million children in America, and it is imperative that we make an effort to further educate children and parents on asthma care and management.”

If your child deals with asthma year-round, EveryoneBreathe.com is a great site dedicated to providing parents with helpful explainers, resources, and tools to manage its symptoms. Printable tools that increase asthma awareness include a glossary, a symptom and trigger tracker, a healthcare provider checklist, a back-to-school checklist, and more.

Mary Joe Fernandez, an Olympic medalist and tennis champion, is the site’s spokesperson.  “Having battled the symptoms of asthma for many years, and now as the mother of a child with asthma, I can’t emphasize enough the importance of quality asthma care both at home and in school.”  To help improve quality of care and education for school-aged children with asthma, EveryoneBreathe.com is partnering with the AAFA for a new Everyone Breathe Asthma Education Grants program.  Parents who have children with asthma can apply for a $2,500 savings bond for their child’s continued education and a $5,000 savings bond for their child’s school to improve asthma care and education in the classroom.  Ten winners total will be selected.  The deadline is July 29, 2011.

    Beyonce is very much set to reach number one during this weekend’s album charts, taking Lady Gaga off from the top position. The American vocalist, who headlined at Glastonbury, is marketing her album, 4, three times as quickly as chart rivals based on (blank) the Official Chart Update.

    Hiya, I am really glad I’ve found this information. Today bloggers publish only about gossips and net and this is really frustrating. A good site with exciting content, that’s what I need. Thank you for keeping this website, I will be visiting it. Do you do newsletters? Can not find it.

    Hey! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    Hi all, – found out about this web page accidentally while looking round the net this evening, and pleased that I did! I do like the design and style and colours, but I should say that I’m having trouble when it loads. I’m using WannaBe 2 web browser for mac, and the menu bit would not line up well. i am pretty sure I’ve employed an identical design on a company’s online site, but the menu seems fine on mine. I think the error is with my outdated browser and just maybe it’s time to switch!
