The Asthma Society of Ireland is calling on the public to support their vital work by buying a virtual bauble for their online Christmas tree.
Each week in Ireland, at least one family is devastated by the death of a loved one from asthma. These losses are made even harder as the vast majority of these deaths are preventable.
The Asthma Society of Ireland is working tirelessly to help stop asthma deaths by providing crucial support and services to people with asthma and their families but they need your help.

The situation is particularly dire at the moment because the demand for asthma support services has soared During Covid-19.
To keep up with this unprecedented demand the charity is urging the people of Ireland to support their work by purchasing a bauble or star from their virtual Christmas tree via https://asiremembrancetree.
You can donate to the Asthma Society by sending a loved one a virtual bauble in lieu of a present this year or by purchasing a virtual star in memory of someone. In this way their name can shine bright on the asthma tree with a message about them, and who they were.
Companies and businesses can also support the Asthma Society by making a donation through this page. The Asthma Society Christmas Appeal is kindly supported by the Allergy Clinic.
Record numbers of people are in need of the Asthma Society’s help right now. 380,000 in Ireland are living with asthma, with 890,000 likely to develop it in their lifetime.
The Asthma Society operates two support services, the HSE funded Nurse-led Asthma and COPD Adviceline service on 1800 44 54 64 and the Sláintecare funded Nurse-led Asthma and COPD WhatsApp messaging service on 086 059 0132.
These lifesaving services allow people with asthma and COPD to connect directly with a respiratory nurse who will work with them on an ongoing basis to help them get in control of their asthma or COPD.
