Matthew W., NY

I want people to breathe clean air free of diesel fumes from trucks, cars, and busses. I want to see more natural gas cars and hopefully, more fuel-efficient cars to prevent harmful fumes going into the air. I also want to see more healthy people and less getting lung cancer from diesel fumes, nasty soot, and other air pollution. 

I hate to see people die and miss holidays and other valuable time with their loved ones. That's why I want to get involved with the American Lung Association to advocate for clean air protections and teach people to live healthy lives. 

I too want to live a healthy life with my wife while being an active volunteer firefighter and not to developing lung cancer.
