Terry P : DE

I have severe asthma and last September was diagnosed with two pulmonary embolisms. The embolisms have dissolved now thanks to blood thinners, but I am constantly short of breath especially in the spring when everything is blooming.

I can't be around all the exhaust fumes and smog if I'm stuck in traffic, so just having clean air really benefits everyone with lung problems. I was always active in sports growing up, so being diagnosed four years ago with severe asthma and being this sick is a wake up call. I don't like living my life on inhalers, but I have to, because of all of the toxins in the air.

We really need to clean up the air!!!
