Hi and welcome to Asthma Kids. My name is Chester and I have asthma. I will help you find out more about asthma as you go through Asthma Kids. Asthma Kids is for everyone. If you have asthma, it will help you. If you have friends or family with asthma, it will show you how you can help them.
To go into the monthly draw to win a prize, take Chester’s Asthma Trail and collect all the blue balloons. To be in the draw for a prize you will need a parent or teacher to help at the endExplore
Congratulations. You have finished Chester’s Asthma Trail. Well done. You have collected all the blue balloons.
To collect your certificate and go into the monthly draw for prizes you need to get a parent to help now.
Your child has completed Chester’s Asthma Trail and is eligible to go into the draw for a monthly prize. You need to complete the form below on their behalf for them to comply with online regulations for children’s websites. Please note: entry is only valid for Australian residents
After entering your child in the prize draw, please join the You Care We Care campaign. It’s easy – sign up as an Asthma Champion to let our Health Ministers know that parents of children with asthma need their ongoing support.
Asthma impacts one in ten children in Australia and remains a leading cause of school absenteeism. As a parent of a child with asthma you want them to be safe and well and so does Asthma Australia.
The You Care We Care Campaign asks parents/carers to share their stories. We will use your stories to advance the asthma cause and will publish these online and as a digital storybook. Your stories will be presented to the Prime Minister, each State and Territory Premier or Chief Minister and their respective Ministers for Health during National Asthma Week 2015.
You can help us by sharing your experiences. All stories are welcome. They can be stories of success, perhaps your child has done well at sport, or got outstanding marks at school and equally they can be stories of frustration or the challenges faced in caring and loving a child with asthma. Stories should be a maximum of 100 words and it would be great if you can also include suitable photograph where possible.
To share your story use the #myasthmastory hashtag via Facebook, Twitter or by completing our online form.
You can also add your support by allowing us to include your name as a You Care We Care Asthma Champion in the storybook. Just complete the form below.
