One-third of all cancer deaths are related to tobacco usage.


Preventing tobacco usage before it starts and encouraging current smoking adolescents and adults to quit have become important goals for the "Gift of Life," leading the program to incorporate smoking cessation and prevention into its mission. The organization's tobacco activities began with ASPIRE, the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center-created high school curriculum, and developed into a community-wide campaign titled "Don't Smoke Your Life Away."
