In the Spotlight:
In Memoriam: Bill Busse
Bill Busse, a recent participant of the successful Tips from Former Smokers campaign, has passed away as a result of heart disease. By the time he was 40, Bill had already suffered kidney failure, blindness in one eye and a leg amputation due to circulation issues. Each of Bill’s health problems stemmed from his diabetes, which was worsened by his smoking.
Bill was brave enough to take part in the Tips campaign and share his story to help others avoid tobacco’s deadly effects. Even though Bill is gone, he leaves behind a powerful legacy in the form of the many former tobacco users that he helped quit.
