My mother became ill with lung cancer. She bravely battled it but lost her fight two years later. Two months later my father was diagnosed with lung cancer. He battled valiantly but passed away five years later. I watched both of my parents languish, suffering from this disease. I watched them both whittle away, slowly and cruelly. Nobody should have to suffer like this, especially people that do not even smoke themselves. That is why I want clean air.
