Stephenie N., TX

My eight-year-old Lincoln has developed asthma because of the poor air quality here in Denton. We moved to Denton so I could finish my undergraduate degree, and within 3 months of living here, Lincoln was hospitalized for asthma. Something must be done to protect our children. He cannot play outside, because the air quality is so poor. I pray someone does something to help my kid and others just like him.
