Breathe Easy Play Hard Foundation
Breathe Easy Play Hard
There's no better sports-and-life role model for the Breathe Easy Play Hard "you can win, you will win with asthma" philosophy in action than the Olympic Games. Especially when it's a fact that more than 1 out of 4 Olympic and elite athletes already have asthma.

Pulmonologist Dr. Janis Schaeffer, a sports-and-asthma expert on young people of all ages, speaks below to several major national news and sports media about the enormous challenges and obstacles faced by Olympians with asthma. In Beijing, China, the measured pollution levels are 12 times the maximum recommended by the World Health Organization and the city has a reputation for excessive summer heat and humidity.

And she addresses how the Breathe Easy Play Hard mission helps develop young athletes and youth with asthma into smart competitors from day one--who can effectively deal with controlling asthma and avoiding triggers that worsen the chronic condition.
