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.
