Against Breast Cancer
Against Breast Cancer is the story of the personal crusade of founders Dr Anthony Leathem and his wife Patricia in their search for a future free of breast cancer. With around 125 women a day in the UK being diagnosed with breast cancer, every £1 you raise is vital in enabling us to continue funding research to increase the survival of women who have the disease.
Asthma is a condition that affects the airways – the small tubes that carry air in and out of the lungs. When a person with asthma comes into contact with something that irritates their airways (an asthma trigger), the muscles around the walls of the airways tighten so that the airways become narrower and the lining of the airways becomes inflamed and starts to swell.
