Research has revolutionised the lives of people with asthma


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.

  • Asthma is the leading cause of absenteeism from work and school.

  • Of the 400 Australians who tragically die from asthma each year, it is believed many could be prevented.

Regular Giving is one of the best ways you can support people living with asthma.  As a Blue Ribbon Supporter you will receive regular updates on the difference your contributions are making, and we will mail you an annual receipt for taxation purposes that summarises your donations throughout the year.
