131015JohnHillmanPatientActivePic13John Hillman was driving home one evening from his job as a firefighter when his breathing became labored. His lungs struggled for every breath. By late evening, he was in intensive care. That was 1995. He was 47 years old.

None of his doctors knew what caused his first asthma attack. He had never suffered from a respiratory condition in his 20 years as a firefighter. After that first — and a subsequent — asthma attack, John ended up missing work for nine months, and eventually left the field after 21 years.
