Dan G., FL

My mother (a non-smoker) died in 2005 from lung cancer just before turning 58-years-old. My children will never know the incredible woman she was. Unfortunately, she only saw my son as an infant and died before my daughter was born. She left us too young. Air pollution affects your health whether you realize it or not.
