Cindy C., OH
The quality of the air means a great deal to me as I have been ill since age 7 with asthma. Over the years it has become life threatening. I have spent more time in the hospital than I do at home.
Something needs to be done to get the air quality to a point where everyone can breathe better. My lungs are so bad that there is nothing else the doctors can do. I am dying slowly fighting every second of every day to breathe. I am extremely weak and very thin—less than 90lbs. My quality of life is nothing. It's awful to have to live this way. Please do something with the air so others don't have to suffer the way I do.
