About the Jovante Woods Foundation:
On August 14th, 2010, Jovante Woods died suddenly from a severe asthma attack. Because of their loss, Jovante’s parents, Ickey and Chandra, were inspired to educate and help prevent others from experiencing the loss of a loved one. One in every ten Americans suffers from asthma, yet many are not aware of how very dangerous it can be. The mortality rate for children 19 and under has risen 80% since 1980. Asthma has become epidemic accounting for 25% of all emergency room visits and is the #1 chronic disease in our nation. Information and education regarding asthma is woefully sparse. The Jovante Woods Foundation’s goal is to not only raise awareness and educate, but support Cincinnati Children’s Asthma Research Division with their mission to develop more effective medication to control this disease and ultimately discover a cure.
