My son's doctor encouraged me to order an asthma cd-rom game that is offered free to US residents in English or Spanish. (It also lists a phone number for Canadian residents to order but I'm not sure if it is free, perhaps shipping and handling will be charged.) It is educational and you cannot advance to the next level until you answer correctly all the answers on the previous level.

The voices on the game are provided by Glenn Close, Minnie Driver, Whoopi Goldberg, Shaquille O'Neal, Cuba Gooding Jr., Diane Sawyer and other celebrities.

Check it out! I just ordered one for my son today.

Thanks Cindia,
I believe it's free for Canadian Res. as well! Both my kids are being treated for asthma and all you have to do is give the Dr's name that's treating them.
Cool idea. It takes 4-6 weeks for delivery.
You can't do it on-line because it asks what state your in, so I called the number and left message with all the info.

We got info about the game in the mail and I called and ordered it. It is WONDERFUL!!! Timmy really enjoyed playing it and the whole family (including Daddy) stood around the puter and watched. Everyone learned a lot of new things about asthma and how to control it. I highly recommend the game!
