Blog for asthma sufferers


Thanks to Asthma UK (which I thoroughly recommend fellow-sufferers and, especially, parents of children with asthma, to join), here is a link to the official asthma blog.

This coming Tuesday is World Asthma Day. Sadly, this has not received much attention in the local media this year, so I'm doing my bit to publicise the Welsh contribution.

"Recommendations by Asthma UK Cymru will be highlighted at a reception at the Senedd between 8am - 2pm on World Asthma Day sponsored by Jenny Randerson, Assembly Member, Health Spokesperson for the Welsh Liberal Democrats. We are urging Assembly Members, people with asthma, parents of children with asthma and the general public to come along during the day and lend their support to the campaign by signing our Pledge Board which calls for better services for people with asthma in Wales.

"At 1pm they will be joined by children from local early years and primary schools whose carers and teachers have benefited from Asthma UK Cymru’s Alert to Asthma education programme, and in the evening Caernarfon and Caerphilly castles will be lit up in lime green – our brand colour, from 8pm. "
