Joey Shepherd's Memorial Fundraiser

Our son, Joey Shepherd, suffered from asthma his entire life.  He struggled to breathe every day and ultimately it cut his beautiful life short at the age of 34.  In the prime of his life, with a beautiful wife and three amazing children, he left us and we are broken hearted.  As an ICU nurse, he helped so many and it is our hope and prayer that his memory will live on in continuing to help others to deal with this terrible disease.  Please consider honoring him with a donation to this organization.


Be an AAFA Ally!

AAFA Allies host and support fundraisers that fuel our mission-critical programs. Your generous donations support: 

  • Education programs and lifesaving resources on disease prevention, diagnosis, and management for people living with asthma and allergies and health professionals.  

  • An online support community where people can find health education materials and talk directly to other people who know what it’s like to live with asthma and/or allergies.  

  • Patient-centered research to improve health outcomes and address health disparities in communities that are greatly affected by allergic and respiratory conditions. 

  • Advocacy for laws and policies that ensure access to high-quality, affordable, and evidence-based health care and treatments.  

We couldn’t do this without the passion and support of our donors. Together, we can make a lasting impact on the lives of people with asthma and allergies.
