Clean Air Ambassador: Marcia Owens

At least 12 boys on my son's team have asthma, and at practice they line up the inhalers on the back of an old abandoned school bus.

My son Marcus is a football player. Marcus has had asthma since he was a little boy, and one of the stresses of going to his games is I have to have the inhaler in the stands. Clean air is important for kids to be able to do what they need to do without worrying about taking the next breath.

There are at least 12 boys on his team who have asthma, and at practice they line up the inhalers on the back of an old abandoned school bus. And when they need one—it doesn't matter, they're brothers, and they are all Albuterol—they just grab one.

This shouldn't be. They should be able to have fun and play the game that they love without worrying about the next breath.
