BRUSLY - Marin J. Stallings, Jr. was just 18-years old when his life was taken by an asthma attack. Now his mother hopes to preserve his memory and fight the disease.

Dianne Stallings and Denise Thomas stopped by 2une In Monday to talk about the TUFF Project's Asthma Awarness Walk and Balloon Release.

Stallings says that her son was working at Wal-Mart one night when he never returned home after his shift. She went looking for him and found him in his car. He had suffered an asthma attack and died of respiratory failure.

All funds from the walk will be donated to the National Asthma Awareness Foundation for asthma research. The walk is this Saturday so you should register now. Watch the video to see how you can give back.
