2013 is an exciting year for AAFA as we celebrate our 60th year of service – through research, advocacy, and education – for an estimated 60 million people living with asthma and allergic diseases. AAFA is the largest and oldest asthma and allergy patient organization in the world helping people live a “life without limits.”

Today, we provide grants to fund research for both asthma and allergic diseases, helping science researchers enhance the overall understanding of asthma and allergic diseases for better treatments and cures. Today, we seek to influence laws and policies to promote the interests of asthma and allergy patients in the United States. And today, we educate healthcare professionals, caregivers, and patients to create a strong community of knowledge, empathy, and activism.

AAFA has been going strong for 60 years because of individuals like you. We could not perform our work without your support and we are so thankful. We do it for you, your loved ones, and everyone affected by asthma and allergic diseases. As 2013 comes to an end, we reflect on how far we’ve come and how far we want to go. Cheers to 60 years behind us and another 60 years ahead.
