Sharon is a divorced single mother who works from home in order to
spend more time with her asthmatic son. Zakís father sees Zak only
every other weekend. She had little knowledge regarding asthma
before she discovered her sonís condition. She currently subscribes to
air quality alerts via SMS and watches morning news for weather and
Sharon and Zak loved playing at the park, but now they settle for
watching his favorite TV show together. She is nervous about leaving
Zak with other people (play dates, daycare, etc.) because she is
afraid they wonít know how to handle an attack. She wants things
to change because she doesnít want to become overprotective like
some of the mothers she met at the asthma parents support group.
"I freaked out when Zak got his first asthma attack. I want to figure this thing out so he can be healthy."
