Ryan Gibbon’s school takes inhalers from students and keeps them in the office so they can be accessed if necessary.
When Ryan really needed his, it was too late.
The 12-year old was playing outside in 2012 when he told his friends he wasn’t feeling well.
"So as he was going to the office to get his inhaler, he kind of was having a hard time and had to be carried into the office, and by the time he got there he had blacked out," Sandra Gibbons told CTV News in Canada.
Now Sandra is fighting to get his school in Ontario to change their policy and allow students to carry inhalers.
Gibbons said she got more than one phone call from the school after Ryan was "caught" carrying his puffer in his backpack.
Some schools in Ontario do allow inhalers, others don’t. Gibbons wants to see the policy unified.
"Unfortunately, I stand here today trying to get this bill, Ryan's law, in place so that nobody else has to feel how I feel every day," Gibbons began.
“And that's missing my son."
