400 people lose their lives to asthma every year
‘Dress Blue for Asthma’ was introduced in 2012 by Basil and Corina Epiha, who lost their eight year old son Bryn to asthma.
“On July 2 2011, our family’s world was turned upside down. Our eldest son went to the toilet and was sick. A couple of seconds later he collapsed. It was very fast – he wasn’t in pain.
Our little boy was gone in the space of two minutes ….
Bryn was just a normal eight year old kid with a passion for the outdoors and there was no real indication as to the ruthlessness of the asthma attack that would take his life.”
Ask your school, workplace, family and friends to register for ‘Dress Blue for Asthma’. Help raise awareness and funds to support people living with asthma in memory of Bryn.
