I had a form of throat cancer with a tumor, due to 55 years of smoking. The had to remove my voice box and part of lymph nodes to eliminate the cancer. I am now two years clear. However I lost the ability to speak, smell and taste. Things we take for granted that will never happen to us. They do and have lasting lifetime effects. The day my tumor burst, I stopped smoking completely. No help, but help was offered. I encourage anyone thinking of quitting to read my story and realize that what is lost sometimes is not found again. Cherish your life and lungs, you can do it just like I did.
