The Birth of A.C.C.E.S.S.:

I recently witnessed the irritation on a little child’s face

Sitting, trapped in her ‘parent’s’ lap, secondhand smoke was in the place

Two weeks later I held in my arms, a newborn babe full of charm

I looked at him closely as he took short breaths

To my surprise I never would have guessed

He had been exposed to secondhand smoke

I realized more & more This was not a joke!

I began to think, what can I do to help

Protect children everywhere so they can be kept

From this horror, I vowed to do my best

Thus birth the name we now call ACCESS.
