Jon S.

We have raised our son between NYC and Denver. We left NYC because of his terrible cough that no doctor could explain. It has persisted into Denver and is perhaps worse here than in Brooklyn, which is very shocking. My wife is also having a very hard time breathing and we are all on a nebulizer now. The road construction around our house is a serious issue that I plan to bring up with the EPA and with the environmental engineer on site when I can locate this individual. We can almost not live here due to the near constant construction that is meant to increase traffic flow and increase pollution. We had never considered moving away until these health issues began affecting us.
