Nadiya Hussain has joined an asthma awareness campaign to breakdown stigma around the condition.

Nadiya shared a video to her Instagram account for #TheLungLetters campaign and said, “Don’t let asthma define you!”

The GBBO star added that she was “thrilled” to be part of the campaign and hope “to raise of asthma and breakdown the unfair stigma that surrounds it.”

The video featured Nadiya along with other well known faces discussing their experiences and reasons for joining the campaign.

“I feel it’s so important that we continue to raise awareness of asthma so that all sufferers no longer feel defined by their condition,” Nadiya said in the video. “Communication, honesty and transparency with my family and our asthma nurse has been the difference maker.”

Boxer Nicola Adams was one of those who also took part in the campaign alongside Nadiya, and said that she hoped, “by sharing [her] experience and getting people talking about asthma we can start to normalise it.”

She added that it takes “time and experience” to recognise symptoms and triggers and “understanding how to manage them, both in terms of avoiding them where you can and also knowing how to minimise risk is important to good asthma management.”

Some of Nadiya’s followers commented on her post to thank her for drawing attention to the cause.

One said, “this makes me feel so better thank you so much, this means so much to me,” while others admitted they “cried of relief” when they watched the campaign video.

More information about the campaign can be found on the LungLetters website, or visit the NHS website for information about asthma.
