Unsure what to do about smoking?
Quitting tobacco improves cancer treatment results, and it reduces the likelihood of another cancer later. But quitting is hard, especially when you’re dealing with cancer. That’s why the University of Colorado Cancer Center offers free assistance from a tobacco treatment specialist who has extra training to help smokers who are dealing with cancer.
The specialist can help you decide what you want to do about smoking. If you want to quit, she can help you choose your strategy and cessation medications. You can meet in person or by phone. For more information, please call 720.553.4473.
Note: This service is currently available only to cancer patients on the Anschutz Medical Campus. Future program expansion is being considered.
