Timothy M., CA
Growing up in Humboldt County California, I had no issues with asthma or any respiratory issues. However, after living in Sacramento, I developed these issues.
I have trouble breathing especially when the air quality is reported as being unhealthy. These issues make it difficult for me to sleep and affect both my mood and my ability to concentrate. I have a 15-year-old daughter who is developing similar issues. Please, help make the world cleaner!
