Teen hopes dying picture of mom stops smoking

a sad story about a teen who is allowing a picture of her dying mom with lung cancer on cigarette packs in hopes it will make people stop smoking:

"Seventeen-year-old Mackenzie Tarbox hopes a picture of her emaciated mother dying of lung cancer stops people from smoking when it appears on cigarette packages.

“The photograph itself is the hardest one for me to look at,” Mackenzie said Thursday, after Health Canada announced the death-bed image of Barb Tarbox will be one of 16 new and larger warning labels on cigarette packs."

I feel bad for the poor girl. But maybe it will help other people quit and save the lives of other parents.

it is sad, but amazing that she is taking this to help others.
