What is Asthma?

Asthma is a chronic or long-term disease of the airways, which are the tubes that carry air into our lungs. Asthma causes swelling in our airways and makes the tubes you breathe through get smaller, which causes difficulty in breathing.

The good news is that asthma can be treated and well-controlled which means it doesn't have to interfere with you or your child's daily life.  Click here to learn more.
