Taynen Keen - Asthma Ambassador: "Nothing Else Matters when you can't breathe"

$10 of $10,000 goal
Given by 1 generous donor in around 8 months

Education is a powerful tool to keep people out of hospital & breathing easy. Try concentrating in class or at work when you can't breathe.

Auckland

Would you be shocked to know that 80 Kiwis die from asthma every year?

I was and that is why I have become an ambassador for Asthma NZ.

Over the next 5-months I will be working with Asthma NZ to raise awareness, understanding and money so we can reduce this number.

I was horrified to know that Asthma costs NZ over $1 billion dollars every year. Imagine what we could do with that money if asthma wasn’t the problem it currently is.

Our goal is to reduce asthma hospitalisation by 50% by 2029. We have plenty of time if we all help out.

I will be asking for your help on this journey. The more people understand about asthma the better we will all breathe.

A bit about me:

I want to be an Asthma Ambassador to help non-asthmatics people understand more about it. I think being part of a good cause like this is an awesome opportunity - it’s important to me to get behind Asthma NZ and support it.

About us

Asthma NZ have been providing education, training and support for 48 years. Our nurses are in the community supporting families and individuals in their homes, at school, in workplaces and on sports fields.

We have nurses in Auckland, Rotorua and Wellington.

Asthma is brushed aside by too many people. Poor breathing affects everything aspect of life. In fact nothing else matters when you can't breathe.

Use of funds

Funds will be spent on developing educational tools for people with asthma.
