CHICAGO, Ill. (WIFR) -- A Rockford mother is doing whatever she can to spread awareness about asthma after her son's sudden and unexpected death due to the condition.

Linda Lowry proudly scaled the Presidential Towers Sunday in Chicago to help raise money for lung disease research. Lowry's son, Michael Kuszak, died from an asthma attack when he was 15 years old even though doctors told her that could never happen.

By being part of Sunday's climb, Lowry hopes to spread the word about chronic lung disease and how serious it really is.
