Asthma is a chronic life-threatening lung disease that affects nearly 5 million teens, causing episodes of wheezing, coughing, and breathing difficulty. It affects about 1 or 2 teens out of 10, and is the most common reason teens miss school in this country.

Living with Asthma is a straightforward guide offering authoritative information on coping and living with the disease. This accessible book features dramatized, real-life examples that allow readers to fully grasp the impact asthma can have on everyday living. Appendixes contain such useful information as organizations, support groups, online resources, and further reading.
