How did Cambridge Mask Co begin, and what are we doing now?
``Last night was my university’s Ring Dance. It’s our school tradition for juniors to have sort of a “college prom” in celebration of receiving our class rings. Showing up to a very public and formal event like this with my mask on was new and difficult for me. A lot of people stared, a lot of people gave me sad looks, and i overheard comments on whether it was a fashion statement or if i was dying. Overall it pushed my out of my comfort zone in the best way possible. All of my friends reacted so well and commented on how nice my mask looked with my dress. If it weren’t for my mask i wouldn’t be able to go to this amazing event with my favorite people.``
“As we approach May, there’s a new challenge ahead. Hay fever, pollution and an asthmatic flare up. Hence why I’m wearing this dashing mask! This Top Gun-esque face-wear was sent to me by the lovely folks at @cambridgemask. This mask filters harmful gas, pollution, exhaust fumes, dust and pollen. People will look and wonder why I need it and that’s fine as I welcome the opportunity to discuss my health. I feel lucky to be able to share my knowledge and my experience of living with a chronic health condition. Treatments and medical equipment are evolving and I for one know I wouldn’t be in the position I am today if not because the advancements that continue to be made.``
