Hugs 4 Lungs

HRP Equestrian owner, Helen Ross, recently launched Hugs 4 Lungs.

Hugs 4 Lungs is a charity that offers a 24-hour support line to families of children that suffer with lung disorders.

Respiratory diseases and lung disorders are a leading cause of mortality in developing countries. It is also one of the main cause of illness in children in developed countries. Asthma and allergies are constantly increasing in the UK.

Helen Ross created Hugs4Lungs in response to her six-year-old son Hugo’s, struggle to breath at night from a rare respiratory disorder. The condition means his airways are narrow and floppy, leading them to collapse and obstruct his breathing. This becomes especially bad when he lays down to sleep. Helen realised that by living through the frightening experience herself, that there was no 24 hour support line for families in this situation, so she set it about her mission to make this possible.

Hugs 4 Lungs are now on a mission to make breathing easier for everyone involved.
