for my nephew who has asthma

'My 5-year-old nephew has severe asthma. He’s often short of breath, and then he has to take medicine through an inhaler to be able to breathe more easily. I think it’s sad that a little child like my nephew has to suffer so much from this disease. He should be able to go out and play football with his friends without always getting so short of breath. I’ve noticed how many of my Turkish relatives and friends have asthma. One person suffers from it more than the other, but still... HELIUS is doing research to gain more knowledge about this. Because why is it that asthma is so common among Turkish people? HELIUS is helping to increase knowledge in this area, which is why I’m helping HELIUS.'
