"We lost our lovely son Cameron from an asthma attack when he was only two. He wasn't diagnosed with asthma, only a viral wheeze, so it was a complete shock.
We wanted a lasting legacy in Cameron's name. Setting up a Tribute Fund has been wonderful. We felt supported by the memories and messages people left on the page. It was also good to know that we raised awareness of how serious asthma can be.
Over the ten years since Cameron's death, we have taken part in all kinds of fundraising for Asthma UK. We've organised balls, bake sales, car washes and even run marathons and raised £100,000. This is more than we ever could have imagined."
Gemma and Ashley Brown, Cameron's parents
