Dan P., SC

I am a victim of childhood asthma and grew up near a coal-fired power plant. I was recently diagnosed with Non Small Cell Lung Cancer Stage 4 at age 35. I am a nonsmoker who loves my family and spending time with my wife and six- year-old son. Everyone has lungs; I wouldn't wish this on my worse enemy. Please let me how I can help ALA and how to help stop the air pollution that causes so much harm to us and loved ones.
