Hello. Being in shape and quitting smoking etc will serve you well going forward with your treatments. It is not for naught.

Is it your surgery that is scheduled for Monday? What type of surgery are you having?

Sts‍ I meant to mention in my last post that I believe the term “superficial” is a good sign.

So many people are aware of the link between tobacco and lung cancer, but very few have any idea about how many other cancers can arise from chronic tobacco use (alcohol, too - so many people think liver cancer, but that’s only the first organ the substance encounters).

That being said, cancer also pays a visit on people who live a pious lifestyle, so there’s no guarantee either way.

I hope your surgery goes well next week!
