Vaping from the Outside
By Susan Oser
I recently just got news about the death of my cousinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father-in-law who died of complications related to COPD. My aunt has a niece on her maternal side of the family who recently got diagnosed with Stage-4 Lung Cancer. A neighbor that lives below her is just starting her lung cancer fight. These are people, who if educated by the community, probably could have been saved and lived longer if they knew all the good things about e-cigarettes. Perhaps they probably heard, but got the wrong information. Maybe their doctors told them not to start vaping and that it was harmful. Maybe they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get any information at all. Whatever the case, I almost feel like weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve failed these people and countless others who are, have been, or will have a smoking-related disease, diagnosis, death.
