"The anguish of Hurricane Katrina should have ended for Gina Bouffanie and her daughter when they left their FEMA trailer. But with each hospital visit and each labored breath her child takes, the young mother fears it has just begun."

Children exposed to formaldehyde fumes could very possibly incur permanent lung damage. When Asthma is caused by allergens, treatment for the allergies, as well as maturity, will sometimes cause it to improve. Lung damage is more difficult to predict.

Additionally, even if the risk of cancer does not cause more problems, long term severe Asthma damages the heart and early heart failure is often the outcome for mature adults with lifelong Asthma.

Thank you Kathleen. (The child is using a nebulizer.)
