Mrs. Cason brings her 10-year-old child to the clinic stating my son â€œjust isnâ€™t breathing right, he doesnâ€™t want to play, he just sits on my lap or lays on the couch, and this happens all the time.â€ Appearance of both mother and child is disheveled. The childâ€™s wheezing can be heard across the room. When asked if her son is better at any certain time of the day the mother responds: â€œItâ€™s like this all the time and has been for the past year, we just donâ€™t come to the doctor because we donâ€™t have any money.â€
Mrs. Casonâ€™s son was diagnosed of asthma.
