Both my brother and sister have asthma , as does my son. My niece died of an asthma attack at 21. I know all too well the dangers this horrible illness can present . Good luck in your campaign and best wishes to you and your husband and love and hugs to little mason . I truly feel your loss .
Such a tragedy, especially after losing his daddy. I knew asthma could kill. Many years ago, my father battled cancer and lost. We had time to say goodbye. My friend lost her father to asthma at the same time but she didn't get the chance to say goodbye because it happened so suddenly.
My boyfriend Tiernan passed away on 31st January this year from an acute asthma attack, at 20 years of age. All I've seen since are deaths related to Asthma, it's so cruel. I'm glad there's finally awareness being made about the severity of it, it just upsets me that it takes something like this to happen before people talk about it. I am so sorry to hear about your daughter, I hope your grandson is doing ok. x
I live with asthma. I nearly died in my teenage years. My sons have it. One of them almost died and survived only because of the dedication of medical and nursing staff. At the time he was ill, he was treated with magnesium (which then, was a new treatment for severe asthma attack). I am so sorry for the loss of such a beautiful daughter, mother and friend to many.
Reading this really upset me. I cannot begin to imagine what your family is going through. As an asthmatic myself who has also got worse as I've got older, needing more inhalers and nebulisers, I can empathise with the situation Lydia was in. And it really brings it home how serious Asthma can be - I am often guilty of just trying to carry on when I am struggling for breath. Raising money and awareness like this will leave a wonderful legacy in Lydia's memory. My heart goes out to you and Mason.
Being an asthmatic myself I can fully understand. Having recently had to call for an ambulance for an Asthma attack and being made to feel that it was my fault for having asthma. People's attitudes towards asthma need to change including the government's
I am so sorry for your loss and my heart breaks for little Mason. I lost my mum to asthma when I was 11 years old and I have received the same response from people that they were not aware you can die from this. Like Lydia, my mum suffered from asthma since she was 6 months old and was in and out of hospital all of her life. It is such an awful thins to suffer with. I know it's hard at the moment but with your love and support Mason will be ok, he is very lucky to have you both. Big hugs and loving thoughts to you all. xxxxx
Heartbreaking. As a mum to a 18 month old little boy it brought me to tears to think of poor Mason. My heart goes out to the whole family. Also, my sister has asthma and it's such a horrible illness. I wish there was a fundraising page for Madon too, I would love to donate to him for a once in a lifetime holiday or to help him in the future.
So sorry for your pain. As an asthma nurse myself I find it heart breaking when an asthma death occurs. Especially someone so young. Pleased that Mason is doing well. Hope Asthma UK raise more funds for reasearch. It's always the cancer and heart charity's that get the money. Never the lung charity's. xxx
