Your gift could help unlock new treatments and a cure for asthma

Danay Maestre-Battle was one of Asthma Canada’s Graduate Student Research Award recipients for her work on the respiratory effects of inhaled pollutants.

Danay’s research was part of the first study to investigate how allergens and inhaled pollutants alter the immune system, leading to asthma. Since finishing her study in 2019, Danay has presented the important results at conferences, in publications and has won multiple awards.

By making a donation today, you help strengthen our National Research Program which supports researchers like Danay, who are working to further our understanding of asthma.

This holiday, we are focused on showing what exactly Canadians with asthma can do, and how the support of our community empowers us to change the lives of all Canadians affected by this chronic disease. 

When you make a donation, you’re giving the gift of hope that life with asthma can be symptom-free, that everyone with asthma can avoid hospitalizations, and that all those affected by asthma can access support so that no one has to face this disease alone.
