Cody B., TX
I have Cystic Fibrosis (CF), which is a debilitating genetic disease that primarily impacts lung health. For me, having clean air means less lung scarring and less bacterial growth.
Exercise is also very important to me, and running outside is a continual activity I engage in to ensure strong and healthy lungs. However, with poor air quality, the constant and deep inhalation of dirty air does not help to clear out the gunk that harbors in my lungs.
If clean air were available in Houston, my health, and anyone with CF or any other breathing issue, would have the potential to live much longer and fulfilling lives.
