One Breath: A Personal Journey with Asthma

One Breath is an educational documentary about asthma. I was diagnosed in January 2005 with severe asthma. Since my diagnosis I have found that many people have no idea what the disease is or what an asthmatic goes through. My goal as a filmmaker is to educate people about the severity of the disease and give them a glimpse into the life of someone who suffers with asthma. The target population for this film is people of all ages, races, and gender. The disease does not discriminate in its impact. My film addresses the scope of the problem, signs and symptoms, what to do, good asthma control, and skills management.
