Watch: New Treatment Offering Hope to Bronx Asthma Sufferers

The Bronx has some of the highest rates of asthma in the country but now there seems to be hope for some asthma sufferers thanks to a new treatment at St Barnabas Hospital.

Every three weeks, the patient gets a series of injections which has improved the quality of life for one particular Bronx kid.

9 year old Alannah Garcia’s asthma was so bad she would miss school dozens of times a year nor could she participate in athletic activities.

Now thanks to the injections, she’s thriving like never before.
