Living with asthma can be challenging in the Atlanta area.  According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, Atlanta was rated as the number 9 asthma capital among the 100 largest U.S. cities.  For five to ten percent of asthma patients with severe asthma, breathing can be even more difficult.
