Congratulations to PinkLadyCha! She is the week 2 winner of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America’s #TackleAsthma and #TackleAllergies contest! In these pictures, her daughter Eden reminds us that asthma flareups can strike at any time. But a fighting attitude helps her face those tough moments.
Asthma can be an emotional and frustrating disease. Eden and her mom know dealing with it isn’t easy. Her mom describes how hard it can be to watch asthma hold your child back from doing what they love..
“Today, I take her life back. I am prepared to make sure she knows that you are no longer going to hinder her elevation because simply, ASTHMA, you won’t win. Eden is officially an #asthmawarrior!” – PinkLadyCha
AAFA will be giving away three more “healthier home” packages of asthma & allergy friendly® Certified products during Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month. Show them how you #TackleAsthma and #TackleAllergies and you could win a “healthier home” package too.
Eden and her mom have won these great products #forahealthierhome:

This AeraSmart sensor automatically detects and purifies the air. It is a True HEPA filter with an AeraSafe antimicrobial treatment that safely removes 99.97 percent of airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns. This includes pollen, ragweed and other allergens such as viruses, germs, dust mites, mold spores and cigarette smoke. It also has a special mode for cold and flu season.
This asthma- and allergy-friendly stuffed toy is machine washable and can hold up to many washings. It's 12 inches tall and is proven to maintain low levels of allergens.
