Asthma is the #1 reason children are hospitalized in St. Louis. Allergies are the third most common chronic disease among children under the age of 18.
The Asthma & Allergy Foundation of America, St. Louis Chapter serves those affected by asthma and allergies through education, support and resources.
The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, St. Louis Chapter (AAFA-STL), a United Way Agency, has been a leading resource for those with asthma and allergies in the St. Louis community for almost 40 years. AAFA-STL’s medical assistance program, BREATH (formerly Project Concern), provides uninsured and underinsured children with life-saving asthma and allergy medications, equipment, education, and support. Our educational programs and advocacy also reach families, schools, and nurses all over the Greater St. Louis area.
