My Lung Letter
I’m Nadiya Hussain, chef, author and presenter, but above all of that, I’m a mother to two boys who have asthma. Asthma has been with us for much of my boys’ lives – it has challenged us, it has tested us, but it has never beaten us…and now it’s time to tell my asthma story in my words…this is my lung letter…
It’s been a real journey of discovery – from waiting for the diagnosis and the emotional impact that it had on me, to understanding my boys’ triggers and managing them when they were small. Throughout that journey, I’ve always told my kids “it’s part of you, but it’s not all of you”. You’re defined by your dreams, not by your asthma.
