My brother was a survivor, a fighter and loved life. He fought to stay alive and enjoy all its riches and beauty. Scott could be funny, and make others laugh till your sides ached. he also had a talent of playing his nose to make one laugh just as they drank someting and you would spitt it all over the dinner table. He was witty, charming, and I miss my brother so much. He died July 10 2004 @ 1:00 p

My grandmother passed away tonight at the age of 70. She was a pack and a half per day smoker for 45+ years, and would use cigarettes as a "social" activity with friends and family. After having to go into the hospital 6 years ago, the doctors told her that she could quit smoking then and get 2-5 years of life, or keep smoking and emphysema would take her within 18 months. She quit right then and there

July 20th will be two years since I and my loved ones have lost our best friend. Pulminary phibrosis leaves such unanswerd questions as we watched over the years the loss of my grandmother, mother, an aunt and ucle. There are no facts or complete answers as to this disease. I my self at the age of 36 wonder each day if there is a chance of myself or any of my five siblings being diagnosed with a fatal d

It has been over a year that you were taken away from me. Your lung cancer won the fight in the end. You were and still are my hero. At the end of the day I am 24 without a father. Nobody to walk me down the aisle or hold my first child. I love you dad, I'll never forget you. I promise to you that I will continue your fight against the cancer that took your life.

Our relationship is now strained beyond repair, mother. To you they were just ciggerettes; to me they were a jealous rival for your time, your commitment, and attention. I've taken many years now trying to understand how someone would choose to ingest dirty air over nurturing a meaningful relationship with her daughter and her grandchildren. I couldn't bare to sleep in your house and you wouldn't visit mi

This past June 8th, has been two long years since you were taken away by Lung Cancer; it has not been easy. You suffered silently as you tried to protect your family, you were the greatest mom. We miss you each and every day. Words cannot express what it is like with out you. We miss you contagious smile and your ability to make others feel worthy. Here we are celebrating Canda Day without you. You never

I miss you George, your smile, Jokes, teasing and most off all your Love. The Lord took you home to be with him, and I know He had His reasons, but I Still miss you lots & Lots. The days are long, I know its been only 5 Months, but my heart still aches and the tears still won't stop, even though I know you have no more pain and you can breath better now where you are. Victory in Jesus.

When we met in hospital 4 years ago, I never dreamed that we would become such good friends. We formed the "Vrot Lung Society" and added to our numbers. First Jackie, then Helena, Carrol, Janine, Babs, Gwynneth, and Marcelle. You suffered such agony, not only with the COPD, but also severe osteoporosis as a result of all the cortisone you had had to take. Yet you remained cheerful and positive. We shared

My father, Wayne Ayer, fought a valiant battle with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis for a year. Unfortunately his strong spirit and loving family couldn't help him beat it. He slipped away April 11, 2006 at the age of 66, leaving behind a loving wife, five children and 4 beautiful grandchildren who will never know just how incredible their grampie was. He fought this cruel illness the way he lived hi

Although it's been over twenty years since that horrible disease took you so suddenly, I still love you, cry for you, and miss you terribly. God I prayed that life would have dealt you a better hand; you so deserved it. Why, oh why. You would just love your grandson. How badly I miss him not having you to see and feel the love from you. I hate, hate tobacco companies and I think the government shou

Daddy...you are terribly missed and enormously loved. You fought a long, brave battle with COPD, sadly it won on May 18th. Thank you for all the lessons you taught us in the way you lived and died.

Three dear friends succumbed to lung disease ;one suffered so much and I watched helplessly.I miss them all.That is why I chose to be a zone captain in the 2006 campaign for funds for the Lung Association of Saskatchewan. Rest in peace my dear friends;I love you and miss you.

Mom will always be an inspiration to me. She was a loving and caring person. When I accepted the lord into my life I already had these values instilled in me by my mom. Nobody expected the cancer to return after 4 years, but it came back with a vengence. I give the lord all the praise and glory for giving me 2 wonderful weeks with my mom.(I lived thousands of miles away) and she was an inspiration again

I read everyone's messages and see how much devastation this disease can bring. I lost my mother to lung cancer when she was just 45 years old and like many of you never thought that smoking could ever mean a death sentence to someone so young. More needs to be done about this disease. Less research dollars goes into treating this disease than the other cancers. I am so sick and tired of the stigmatis

May God hsve mercy upon Anthony and all the Firefighters of the past, present and future.. Are all exposed to vast amounts of toxic waste on a daily basis with every call they respond to, from the smallest trash can to a large Tanker Truck.. Lord do not abandon them at their time of death... When the end is near let them leave with dignity and speed... Allow this Chalice pass quickly from them... They hav

My wonderful cousin Kelly died a month ago today from lung cancer. In less then a year of her diagnoses she passed. She was like a sister to me, and she leaves behind her husband and her beautiful 2 year old son. She never smoked a day in her life. I miss her terribly, she didn't deserve to have her life end so soon. Always thinking of you KK.

My loving Aunt died from CANCER that started out as a tumor in her lungs... she fought it hard for 3 years. Her battle ended with her lungs filling up with fluid and the cancer going to her brain! She smoked for years.... she stopped smoking for about 10 years.... then the tumor showed up. So, please stop smoking... don't start ever. My Aunt raised me from the time I was 5 years old. She was the ONLY

Grandpa, you died of lung cancer from working in the coal mines before most of us were even born. I was lucky enough to be one of the older kids who got a chance to meet you. My memories are vague but mostly I remember you being in a hospital bed, and suffering, and how I didnt want you to be suffering. I know your happy now and I want you to know that gramma will be with you soon, due to cigarettes. If y

My dearest mother, who would have thought at age 55 you would be leaving this world behind. You are in heaven now and free from the bondage that smoking has brought to you. We miss you so much and are glad you are finally at peace and can breathe freely with the angels. Love, Kelly

My mother passed away on January 19, 2006 from recurrent lung cancer. I was by her side for the last month of her life, spent in the hospital. I was lucky and we were able to tell eachother how much we meant to eachother and she was able to tell me her last wishes. I know she is not in pain anymore and is finally able to rest.

To my dearest father who entered eternal life on January 26, 2006 after battling with the devastating disease of pulmonary fibrosis. Daddy you did not deserve this horrible disease. You deserved so much more. You were the best father any daughter could ever ask for. You have taught me so much and made me who I am today and I will always have you in my heart. This disease may have taken you from us, bu
