Asthma is a condition that affects the airways – the small tubes that carry the air in and out of the lungs. George Coller endured so much in his short life with the constant traumas of coping with Asthma.

Eventually it all got too much for his little body and he passed away in his sleep.

He was only three years old and his death was a needless tragedy.

The George Coller Memorial Fund is a registered charity and was launched in 2000. Its main purpose is to raise awareness about Asthma and to improve the healthcare provisions for all children suffering with the condition.

1,100,000 children living in the UK receive treatment for Asthma.

Just An Hour To Help Save A Child’s Life: Asthma Education Website Launched

The George Coller Memorial Fund is pleased to announce the development of a free online educational resource which has been specifically designed to support anyone who works with children or young people with asthma.

This includes teachers; other school staff, sport coaches and youth group leaders.

In light of the publication of the Children and Families Bill and the change in the law to allow schools to keep spare emergency inhalers, the George Coller Memorial Fund, in partnership with Education for Health, have developed this potentially lifesaving Asthma educational module.

This educational resource covers:

  • Asthma and its impact on children and young people
  • What Asthma is?
  • How Asthma is treated
  • How to recognise an Asthma attack
  • What to do in the event of an Asthma attack
  • Asthma and inhaler devices

This resource is free of charge and users will be able to access it anywhere, anytime.

Animator In Our Midst

Another of our own who has asked to help us bring our website to life and get others to understand what a young person with Asthma goes through.

At college as part of a course they did an animation which opened a few eyes as to their plight and has very kindly adapted it to suit our website.
