My parents and smoking - Rob's story*

Thursday, June 7, 2018

My parents were both in their teens when they first started smoking.
They'd tried to quit a number of times over the years, but to no avail.
In 2015, after a 6 month battle with pancreatic cancer, my father died at the age of 62.
In 2017, after fighting lung cancer for over 3 years, my mother died, aged 63.
My wife and I are about to welcome our second child into the world.
Every day I think about the fact that my children will grow up having never met their grandparents, my Mum and Dad.
My parents died senseless and agonising deaths, all thanks to cigarettes.
Be around for your family and quit smoking now.
