Cathy P., ND

I have had asthma for over 60 years. As a child I missed so much school and social things that it made me a person who had trouble with everyday life.

I find that I can't be around people who have cigarette smoke on their clothes or be near cleaning products and perfumes, so I am limited with my activities.

My daughter and granddaughter also have asthma, so I worry about their futures. The only thing that can help is cleaner air. I hope in the future, everyone will try to make the air cleaner.
