I volunteered for Asthma + Lung UK because I wan to change the whole outlook on asthma and lung diseases within the United Kingdom.
You're raising awareness on a massive, massive condition that doesn't get nowhere near the amount of support and guidance and everything else as the charities get.
I had an asthma attack about four years ago. My late wife suffered from COPD. My sister passed away from a severe asthma attack. Both myself and my husband, who's now sadly passed suffer with COPD.
Volunteering has really opened my eyes to the issues that people in lung conditions face. For many, many young asthmatics, there really isn't very much support after the initial diagnosis. We'll be able to reach parents and children who after going home from the hospital, have nobody. They have no support. So I'm flying the flag now for the carers because I think that that is such an important aspect.
Volunteering is something that is deeply rewarding, both for yourself and for the people you work with.
You've got a voice and you can use your voice. It's about having confidence in yourself with living with a condition and sharing your experiences and knowledge with people. It gives me an understanding of a condition. It gives me a learning curve. You can't get anything more rewarding than that. I wouldn't give it up for anything.
They're really supportive and it's really a great organisation. You meet some great people. We are great. We're all great.
