New video on the website

Just thought I'd mention some new video we've put on the site today, where two people share their experiences of living with severe asthma. Would be great to get people's views on it:

asthma.org.uk/what_you_can_...

Thanks

Luke

Thanks Ginny! I should have used this shortcut:

asthma.org.uk/lifeandbreath

The link does work, it's just the message boards with their ""endearing"" habit of putting an unexpected space in the middle of long links (and the space in this link was particularly difficult to spot!).

I have watched the video a few times now and i prefer the old one that describes what it is like to have an asthma attack.

Wow! I really, really like the new videos they are both so moving and inspiring and left me feeling compelled to help. I am indebted to the life saving advice that Asthma UK give, you filled a very big gap left by the NHS care provided in my area and the forums gave me a safe place to learn about and come to terms with my asthma.

I think the new videos are really, really good and show a side to asthma that people may not realize - people already know that we have difficulty breathing but a lot of people don't realize the impact asthma can and does have on families and ordinary people just like them. The second video was so poignant and it was so brave of the families to share their story in such a lovely down to earth way that i think will speak to non asthma sufferers. Well done AUK, huge pat on the back i think they are both brilliant videos, and thank you for all that you do for us you could never know the difference you make to us, its huge and too big for words THANK YOU!

That's amazing, it's so heartfelt, and will hopefully encourage more people to donate. Yesterdays World Asthma Day definately taught me that asthma research and work needs a lot more funding to make life a lot easier.
