Air Quality Relief Effort (HEPA's for CFers)
These particles are the ones that penetrate deepest into the lungs, causing inflammation. Naturally, this poses a huge threat for people with CF who already have compromised lung function.
It will be weeks before all this gunk is out of the air, and Santa Ana conditions are not making it any easier. I've spoken to some CFers in Southern California who do not have air conditioning, let alone a free-standing HEPA filter in their homes.
I'm asking the members of the blogosphere and anyone else who has been wondering what to do to help San Diego Fire victims. Please consider helping me raise some money to purchase HEPA filters for those in need.
Your generous gift will bring much needed relief to those who are struggling for breath in the wake of this firestorm.
