Press release from Boys & Girls Clubs of Monmouth County

Asthma is one of the most common, recurring childhood illnesses; nearly 300,000 children in New Jersey have been diagnosed with asthma. Because asthma attacks can be prevented and managed, The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey believes it can make a positive impact, by improving the quality of life for asthma sufferers and their families and increasing awareness of the disease and its management,  through the BEAM (Breathe Easier with Asthma Management) Program.
