I'm only saying this because all of you wonderful women that have responded to me, know what I'm talking about! That was good info about a possible Hawaiian donor, I'd love an excuse to go there if I need a transplant. Do any of ya'll use an air filter/cleaner, and if so, which one? Did it help your breathing when you were at home? There are so many on the market, I don't know which to buy..
Hi Linda,

Yes, the air filter GREATLY assisted in ensuring good clean air for my son especially after his ATG. We used a thereupatic air filter with an ionizer suitable for one room. I personally felt the difference in the air with the air filter, and it was a tip from Andrea, one of our forum members as well. Since it was portable, my son could take it around with him whenever he wanted to move around the house:-)

To this day, after more than 5 years past his episode of AA and his recovery,we have replaced the first air filter with a newer one- same brand, same model because we simply adore that filter:-)
