Here is a list of some athletes that TeenHealthFX is aware of who suffer from asthma:
In fact Jerome Bettis has joined with, Jackie Joyner-Kersee and Amy Van Dyken, in forming the Asthma All-Stars Program (AASP). It features the three athletes, who overcame their own challenges with asthma by working with their doctors and following an asthma action plan every day, even when they're not having symptoms. The Asthma All-Stars program offers people information about how to better manage their asthma, help prevent symptoms and reduce the health and lifestyle limitations often caused by the disease. If you or someone you know has asthma, and would like a free information pack, you can call toll-free, 1-877-4ALLSTAR (1-877-425-5782).
