My son has cystic fibrosis and there is currently no cure. His lung function will deteriorate throughout his life until it steals him from this world.

We live in Montana and deal with forest fire smoke every year. We lock ourselves in a sweltering house with an air purifier just to survive the worst air quality days. He writes papers for school with the idealistic view that all smoking should be illegal. I strongly support the American Lung Association and their work towards cleaner air!
