it provides me with a moment to reflect on a wonderful organisation: the Picchi Brothers Foundation and a lovely group of people who have made a genuine and meaningful impact on cancer and asthma research. Frankly, I’m incredibly proud of what we have achieved and I look forward to our ongoing success and influence

Very little has been focussed on asthma yet it affects so many people. We are welcoming the contributions that the Picchi Brothers Foundation are offering to research into this increasing disease.
