The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America is a wonderful non profit organization that has personally helped me in more ways than I can count. When I needed advice and support, there were multiple local AAFA support groups available to guide me where I needed to go. These support group meetings were free and I didn’t have to be a member. I felt that they helped me so much that I volunteered to be a local support group team leader.
However, these support groups are only made possible by those who willingly make donations or sign up for membership. My local group, AAFA New England, is offering a free book with membership while supplies last. The book nearly pays for membership itself. So please consider joining whether you live in New England or another part of the country. There is more thank likely an AAFA chapter near you.

Following is information on the books available free with membership from the AAFA New England chapter.
