My friend katie's 10 year old daughter Claudia died last May of an asthma attack. She had suffered from SEVERE asthma and allergies for most of her short life. This past august her family started the Claudia Rose Asthma Foundation. The non-profit organization raises money for asthma and allergy awareness and research. Claudia's dream was to become a doctor and find a cure for asthma and allergies. On May 16 there will a walk/run held in her honor to raise money for the foundation. If anyone lives in the area and would like to participate the walk/run will be held May 16 in the Hampshire neighborhood. Donations are already being accepted and you can make checks payable to the Claudia Rose Asthma foundation and can be mailed to 6509 Elk court waldorf,MD 20603. All proceeds go to the Asthma and Allergy foundation of America. This cause is very near and dear to me firstly because i knew Claudia and secondly because my own daughter has asthma and severe allergies. Please help us raise money so that we can find a cure for this terrible disesase. Who knows maybe the money raised could save your child. for more info go to http://www.claudiaroseasthmafoundation.org[/URL] thank you.
