CDC: Tips From Former Smokers - Terrie Surgeon General Ad

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)        31 January 2014

 

When Terrie was a child, doctors first linked smoking with cancer.

 

As a teen, Terrie started smoking, like so many other people around her.

 

As she grew older, smoking was linked to more and more diseases.

At age 40, Terrie got cancer from smoking.

 

In this TV commercial from CDC's Tips From Former Smokers campaign,

photos of Terrie's life put a human face on the millions of Americans killed by smoking.
