Since he was 2, Marvin Stallings suffered from asthma, but in November of 2013, the disease took his life. His family now seeks to raise awareness about the disease in the community with their second annual march.
The family will march 3.5 miles starting in Alexander Park in Brusly alongside other community members with asthma and their families at 9 a.m. on May 2.
“Asthma is real and it does kill,” said Marvin’s mother, Dianne Stallings. “You hear about heart disease, you hear about cancer, but you never hear about asthma.”
