The Brendon McLarty Memorial Foundation
The Brendon McLarty Memorial Foundation helped Friend School receive inhalers and spacers for emergency use. This is a great foundation that is helping save the lives of children with asthma across Oklahoma through education and supplies. Below you can learn more about the foundation.
The Brendon McLarty Memorial Foundation was established in July 2017 by Lori McLarty and Jennifer Blair to celebrate and honor the life of a special young man, Brendon McLarty. Brendon had a heart of gold and could light up any room with his big smile. Brendon died on May 20, 2012, at the age of 16 after suffering a fatal asthma attack.
Mission: To honor the life of Brendon McLarty by fighting asthma through education and awareness.
Vision: To educate and emphasize the importance of asthma awareness. There is no cure for asthma, but it can be managed with proper prevention and treatment. Patients, family members, and caregivers can be taught to recognize the early signs and symptoms of an asthma attack. They can also be taught what to do during an asthma attack, and how to recognize and avoid environmental triggers. Many fatal asthma attacks can be prevented by early recognition and treatment.
