"Some cancer survivors may think 'why quit now, it's too late,' but it's never too late to quit smoking." — Mary Cooley, PhD, APRN
Many cancer survivors who smoke don't know that their habit puts them at risk for getting cancer again. This could be a return of their first cancer, or a totally new cancer. In fact, survivors who smoke may increase their risk of developing cancer even more than the average person. Fortunately, you can take control of your smoking and your health. No matter how old you are or how long you've smoked, quitting will help you live longer and healthier.
