Music is the supreme manifestation of the human spirit that touches us all. Whenever I am performing music written by some of the greatest geniuses of history, I am immediately in a different world – a dream world, in which asthma doesn’t exist.
I was diagnosed with asthma six months after I was born. As difficult as it has been to live with this disease, it has never stopped me from working towards my lifelong goal of making the best possible music! [This photo: performing in Italy, 2018]
This is my amazing 14 year old autistic son. He and I both have asthma that has more than once put us in the hospital, but through it all he's been amazing - never letting his asthma or mine stop us from doing anything and everything!!
Asthma nearly killed me a few years ago. I remember waking up only a few days later & thinking I was not ready to die - I had way too much life to live! So I took back my life and accomplished 1 of my biggest goals: I completed my bachelors degree!
Asthma didn’t stop me from dressing up and marching in the carnival parade in St. Vincent and the Grenadines! Served as a great study break from medical school. I will never let asthma hold me back from enjoying life. #MoreThanAsthma

I do not let my asthma and allergies stop me from doing what I love. When I'm climbing I feel so in tune with my body and the environment. It's as if the whole world ceases to exist, and all that matters is me and the rock. In that moment I'm just me.
