Portland Friend Struggling To Breathe


--by dotmatrix, posted Nov 18, 2022
Sent my friend Oscar in Portland more masks. The air quality there has been really bad and he's gone through the 3m masks we sent.

He said his lungs, eyes, and chest hurt but now even his saliva tastes like smoke. So we sent more n95 to replace them. There's an inversion happening that is trapping the air there. If you believe in prayer or sending light, please do so for Oscar and all those who have no homes during this time. Thanks so much.
