My Lung Letter
I’m Lord Seb Coe – you may know me best as a two-time Olympic gold medalist and the man who led London’s successful 2012 Olympics bid, but what you probably don’t know is that I’ve suffered from asthma throughout my life. This is my lung letter.
I’ve never allowed asthma to define me, it’s just one part of who I am. When my daughter was diagnosed with chronic asthma, we were determined that she would lead a normal life, thanks to the support of our family doctor and the asthma nurse we were able to make changes where necessary but never allowing her life to be defined by her asthma.

Symptoms & Triggers
We all suffer differently, but by recognising my symptoms and triggers and those of my daughter, it empowered us to take control of the situation. We’ve made changes to avoid triggers and adapted certain areas of our lives, but ultimately it hasn’t held us back, and that is what has been so important.
