Managing and Understanding Asthma

Robert is an athlete.  He has been playing tennis since he was six. He plays five times a week.  And we would hear from the coaches that his fitness level was not appropriate for his age.  And we didn’t understand because he’s, he’s working out twelve hours a week.

Robbie was living with undiagnosed asthma, a chronic inflammatory disease of the lungs.

It was shocking that it was actually asthma.  It got past us.  We didn’t recognize that this was asthma. It wasn’t your typical wheezing, unable to breathe child.
