Breathtakers supports families affected by a rare and life limiting lung disease, Obliterative Bronchiolitis (OB).
Prognosis for children with OB is difficult to predict though in end stage disease lung transplant may be an option. Breathtakers supports families from the time of diagnosis with one-to-one support, information packs and web support.
They work with respiratory specialists to raise awareness and understanding of this disease, especially as children are often misdiagnosed with asthma.
Breathtakers support projects and research which may be of benefit to OB sufferers. They are currentlylooking for people to assist with the collection of old mobile phones, office printers and the like to raise funds.
Breaktakers is run entirely by volunteers and rely totally on donations and fund raising to carry out our work. They are always looking for volunteers and proactive people to join their charity.
