In the upcoming program, singing actress Chenoweth explains that she first started having symptoms after being in New York City during the events of Sept. 11, 2001.
“Ten years ago, around the time after 9/11, I began to suffer with not being able to get my breath...I didn’t know that 25 million Americans had it,” said Chenoweth. In 2007 the actress went public about her battle with Ménière's disease, an inner-ear disorder that can cause vertigo, headaches and nausea, among other symptoms.
The Broadway favorite will now work to raise awareness about the effects of asthma.
“If you manage your asthma, you can live a full, complete life,” said Dr. Travis Stork, co-host of the Emmy-winning syndicated daytime talk show, in a statement.
