Lucy P., CO

When my son was very young, he was diagnosed with asthma. We were in a very polluted state at the time. Every time he went outside, he would cough and often have an asthma attack.

It was so bad for him, because he loved to participate in outside sports like football and basketball. We were always looking after him. We also made sure his teachers watched out for him when he was at school. It was so scary!
