Robin C., FL
I have been diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, and I struggle to breathe even with the assistance of oxygen. I can tell the difference with the amount of moisture in the air and how it coincides with my ability to breathe effectively.
Air pollution is not something you can necessarily see with the naked eye but will affect my breathing. I not only want clean air for myself, but family members as well.
At this point, my daughter has asthma without any other lung issues, and I hope to keep it that way. Thank you for conducting these tests to make our communities aware of any problems that need addressing.
