"These chronic conditions affect one in every five Americans. People may not be seeking care for their conditions, or may not be able to afford the cost of their medication and doctor visits," states Lynda Mitchell, AAFA's chief operating officer. "Sadly, ten people die each day from asthma, many of which could be avoided with proper care and treatment."

"Asthma and allergy control begins at home. It is important to use appropriate and effective cleaning methods to address common indoor allergy triggers like dust mites, pet dander and mold," said Melanie Carver, AAFA's vice president of community services.
