Asthma? COPD? Other respiratory conditions?

As a parent of a child with reactive airway disease, and as a physician, it was abundantly clear that breathing is one of the most important things we do and take for granted. Millions of folks are out there struggling to breath, and need some support.... Recognizing this need, I asked a clever cardiology fellow (about to complete his cardiology training) if he could think up any ideas for a shirt just before we scrubbed into a case to install a defibrillator. He thought and thought and we tossed around a few ideas, then he smiled, and came up with this idea for a t-shirt:

It obviously harkens back to the days of Bill Clinton's election bid stance on whether he used illicit drugs "... but I didn't inhale!" and we tried to keep it acceptable to all ages by including a picture of an inhaler (yes, it's an Atrovent inhaler belonging to my son....). So enjoy! Share it with friends and feel free to contribute your ideas to make another person's day a bit brighter! Oh, yeah, you can find it at: http://www.cafepress.com/medtees/1076980. A portion of proceeds are contributed to the American Lung Association.
