My name is Michael, and I’m the owner of Breathe Healthy. As a kid, I ran a lawn and field mowing business ( I think I spent more time on a tractor seat than a bicycle seat). Unfortunately, I also had allergies. There were times when I would be in the fields all day, but then have to come home with my eyes swelled shut because of my allergies. I tried masks, but they were uncomfortable, and not very easy for a kid to keep on his face in the humid Maryland summer heat…..
A more urban lifestyle and career kept me away from the worst of my allergies until I entered the military. Once again, time “out in the field” brought back my allegies with a vengeance. While serving in a desert environment, we often had to operate in sandstorms and high dust and dirt environments. Often, a shirt or rag wrapped around the face was what we used to protect ourselves…..
After leaving the military, I met someone who had developed a mask that was comfortable, re-usable, and worked like a charm. It had already gained popularity among people with COPD, as well as cancer warriors going through chemotherapy. I decided that this was a product that could really help people, and had a great future. So, much like the old TV ad for the electric shaver, “I liked it so much, I bought the company!”
