I was diagnosed with asthma at the age of 14.
The condition has changed my life. I’ve been hospitalised several times and have had to give up some of the things I love such as dancing and swimming.
Asthma is a disease which can have a profound impact on a person's life, but knowing what precautions you can take is important.
I hope that sharing my own experiences with Fixers will help others understand the condition and know how they can manage it.
*NOTE: Some Fixers exceed the age range of 16 to 25 during the course of their project.
I would like to thank Joe Gosling, Charmaine Coombs and Laura Jane Parfitt for helping me with this Fix.
