Become a Regular Giver
Welcome you to the Blue Ribbon Supporter Program. Blue Ribbon supporters give hope for people living with asthma.
Asthma is a chronic disease that affects 2.2 million Australians and sadly there are over 400 deaths every year. Research is vital to advancing knowledge of asthma triggers, causes and treatments, with new medications, exploring possible vaccines and ultimately leading to a cure.
Some facts about asthma
Asthma is a condition of the airways which makes it hard for to breathe. People with asthma have sensitive airways that react to triggers. Some people struggle to breath daily.
1 in 9 Australians suffer from asthma.
Asthma affects people of all ages and there is currently no cure.
Over half of the hospitalisations for asthma are children under the age of 14 years.
