Introduction: Roshawn Peake Asthma Foundation
This video is not spam! I am 27 years old. I am from Fayetteville, TN. My husband died last year from an ashtma attack. He was 25 years old. The medication he needed to improve his lung function was $3,600 dollars a month and we could not afford it. As a direct result, he passed away. I wanted to do something for other people so they wouldn't have to go through a tragedy like mine, just because of their inability to pay. I started the Roshawn Peake Asthma Foundation. It is a nonprofit entity dedicated to people who suffer from pulmonary-related disorders and can't afford their medication. There is no age limit, and pulmonary related disorders do not discriminate. I recently opened an office in Fayetteville on the square. I have a background in business adminstration, psychology, and accounting. I hired two lovely ladies, a branch manager and a public relations/ fundraiser coordinator. Right now, we are not receiving grant money and I am out of pocket for 90% of operating costs. The $25,000 funding would help approximately 200 patients breathe. My company is a licensed nonprofit. We are registered with the state of Tennessee and the United States Federal Government. Thank you for taking the time to watch this video, and I look forward to hearing from y'all out there in Lynchburg!
