Right now in Australia, 2.7 million people are living with asthma, and hundreds of people are still dying from asthma attacks each year. Asthma is often dismissed as non-serious condition, coined “it’s just asthma.” But the reality is that it can be a debilitating chronic condition that costs workplaces, schools and the healthcare system billions of dollars each year, and moreover, it stops people from reaching their full potential, living a life that is free and unrestricted by its constraints.
