Dear Mr. Fedor,

Parma Hospital I am writing to you over concern for the citizens living and working near your plant. The emissions from your plant need to be cleaned up. There are ways to improve the quality of the air that you and your company have chosen to ignore.

I am a registered nurse and have seen firsthand the consequences of air pollution. I have cared for patients with many lung diseases. I have had to use suction machines to clear the airways of patients with tracheostomy tubes. I have run to answer the alarms of the ventilator patient in distress. Presently I work as a hospice nurse. Dying from a lung disease is one of the hardest to witness, not being able to breathe is terrifying.  

I am aware that lung disease is caused by many factors. One of those factors is the pollution coming from your factory. As a fellow human being and inhabitant of the earth, I implore you to clean up your facility.You can have an impact on the health and well-being of many. Please stop making excuses for not improving your facility.

It appears that financial reasons are causing you to stall on cleaning up the emissions. Lowering the incidence of disease helps everyone financially by lowering the cost of healthcare. Please be a good citizen and neighbor and implement the changes needed to clean up your emisssions.
