May is Asthma & Allergy Awareness Month

Each year, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) declares May to be "National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month." It's a peak season for those with asthma and allergies, and a perfect time to educate family, friends, co-workers and others.

There is no cure for asthma and allergies, and many deaths are preventable with proper treatment and care.

  • Ten people die each day from asthma.
  • Asthma affects more than 24.5 million Americans.
  • More than 6 million children under the age of 18 have asthma.
  • More than 50 million Americans have all types of allergies – pollen, skin, latex and more.
