Hello David. I wanted to touch base with you. You are in my prayers. As you know Jim is struggling too. I am thankful he quit smoking when he did but after briefly meeting your Dad I can see this disease seems to run in your family and also pray your other siblings quit as soon as they can. I know it's hard. I know your lungs can also be affected by other things such as asbestos. I have a friend struggling with lung cancer now. What we didn't know did hurt us. It's all very sad. God Bless and take the best care of yourself you can. I will help when I can...
