Sandra G., TX
On September 28 2014, I was admitted to the ER with respiratory failure at just 44-years-old. I was on life support for five days. I have COPD, and I want to live longer to see my kids and grandkids grow up.
I fear everyday for my life. I am disabled with diabetes and other health issues too. I can't do the things I use to. I long to play with my grandkids, but I get really tired. I feel like I'm not human anymore.
I would love to breath clean air and enjoy my life with my family once again.
