Rose started smoking at 13, and before long, she was spending her school lunch money on cigarettes instead of food. Her addiction to cigarettes led to lung cancer—and the fight of her life. In this video from CDC's Tips From Former Smokers campaign, Rose talks about living with cancer. She never really believed that she would get cancer from smoking—not her. Rose had chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery (twice) to fight the disease. At age 60, she died from lung cancer caused by smoking.
