Rouben P., CA
I live here in Lynwood, California and have been diagnosed with Castleman’s disease, which weakens my immune system and causes me to suffer with rashes, shortness of breath, headaches, blurred vision, as well as memory loss, just to name some of what ails me day to day.
I have no money to relocate to a place with cleaner air quality, and so I try to stay indoors as much as possible with my HEPA air purifier. Thanks for hearing my concerns.
