"It was our biggest ALA team, so, far!"

Our Godfrey Mayor, Mayor Mike Mc Cormick celebrated with us, again, this year!

Mayor Mc Cormick wrote a Proclamation, specially for "Asthma Awareness Day, for the Village of Godfrey!

And, Mike Walters, with Madison County's Board backed our initiative, recognizing Saturday, May 4, 2013, as Asthma Awareness Day, for Madison County!

Outstanding feast!

This simple medical device, measures Lung Capacity!

Which, as Smith clearly demonstrated, when used properly, giving the ability to regulate medication, does prevent complications with breathing difficulties; Highly important for Asthmatics!
