Two daughters save mom's life

Asthma can be deadly.  There's no cure for it and the number of people afflicted with it are increasing.  I know the feeling of an asthma attack.  It is the scariest thing I have ever gone through.  Especially if you're far from an inhaler.  This happened to Heather Conrad-Smith while hiking with her family in Oregon.  She started having respiratory failure on the return trip from the hike.  She sent her daughters and their dog ahead to find help while dad carried her.  The girls ran over two miles past downed trees; sometimes having to navigate next to cliffs by a lakeside before they found a ranger and then gave rescuers detailed directions to find their mom.  These girls were only 5 and 7.  brave girls
