No, My Mother Never Smoked

Why do I feel the need to tell people that my Mother was never a smoker? So, silly, it doesn’t change the diagnosis.  But everybody asks and I do feel the need to protect her non-smoking reputation.
Did you know that 20% of lung cancer hits non-smokers!  And the #1 cause is exposure to radon gas.  I don’t think we’ll ever know the exact cause but if you’re still smoking, please keep trying to stop.

  1. Same with Janice’s dad, and he was a conservative Baptist pastor. I did kid him a lot though about the little bathroom that was attached to his office with can of air freshener. Would say, Frank are you sure you never sneaked a ciggy and covered it up? 😅

    Seriously, know it’s hard having traveled down this road previously. Will continue to keep you in our thoughts and prayers.
