ABSTRACT
The article relates how cancer changed a patient's life and advises smokers to immediately quit the habit. It mentions that the patient found out that she had cancer in the mouth while she was undergoing a nerve test. The patient had smoked for almost 30 years, and both her brothers died from throat cancer. She discloses that after she quit smoking three years ago, her blood pressure, diabetes, and neuropathy seem better. She is appealing to smokers to try to quit with all their might.
