Both my daughter and I have asthma. As a child, I felt limited in what I could do physically, because exercise, pollen and pollutants all could bring on an attack.
As an adult, I had to visit the emergency room several times before I found a medication that controls my asthma. So far, my daughter has not experienced the same degree of irritation and limitation that I did. Ensuring clean air for her future is extremely important to me.
