WHY

Asthma is the most common chronic disease in children. It causes swelling of the airways that in turn results in narrowing of the airways and difficulties in carrying air to the lungs. Allergens can trigger asthma symptoms that include trouble breathing, wheezing, coughing and tightness in the chest. Asthma management usually requires lifelong care, and like other chronic illnesses, asthma places a great mental burden on the patient. Our game helps kids with asthma cope better with their chronic condition, helps them understand themselves better and teaches healthy behaviors that are necessary for all kids to stay well and energetic.

Here it is:
