Rose developed lung cancer from smoking cigarettes. In this TV ad for CDC's Tips From Former Smokers campaign, she talks about her lung surgery and difficult recovery. Problems kept Rose in the hospital for a month with a plastic chest tube to drain fluids. Every day, she prayed that the painful tube would come out. Rose's tip is "Be careful what you wish for." There was more pain to come for Rose when the chest tube finally came out. Rose died in January 2015. She was 60.
