Jillian's Asthma Story

Jillian's Asthma Story

My family have been involved with the Asthma Swim program for over four years firstly with our daughter Taylor and then our son Hunter.

Over the years I have seen how the program has benefited not only them to manage their asthma but me as well by being able to access the knowledge of the educators at the weekly swim lessons has been invaluable.The Asthma Swim Program also gives me the opportunity to engage with other parents whose children have asthma and form relationships with parents going through the same situation with their children.

Seeing all the great work the Asthma Foundation does made me want to give back, so I became a board member for a short time and got to know the staff and board members on a more personal level and in 2018 was lucky enough to be employed as the office administrator which allows me and my family to be more involved with the foundation which both my kids love as they have grown up knowing the great team at Asthma Foundation.
