I have been an enthusiastic fan of Open Airways’ work since my arrival on-island. I truly value the incredible work carried out by your organization.

Colin Ryan, Pharmacist

It has been a real pleasure helping Open Airways.  Your team does a tremendous job and the community is lucky to have you all.

Sarah Cooke, Non-Profit Executive

Thank you so much for helping me get my Asthma under control. You took the time to meet with me, not just to drop off medication but you brought  pamphlets and took the time to show me how to  use  it correctly. I want to thank you for all you do – Not just for me but for the community of people who suffer with Asthma. A million thank you wouldn’t cover how much I appreciate you.

~Andrea Burch

You brought tears of joy to my daughter’s eyes as she read my Medication Authorization Letter.  Thank you. I am feeling so much better. My spirits have lifted.  I’m blessed to have good people in my life—you being one of them.
