I’m writing this letter as a promise I gave my father, Donald Lee Bayliss, as I watched him dying with Stage 4 lung cancer, unable to breathe, choking and suffering, going into cardiac arrest and passing away at 10:30 a.m. on April 5 at Hoag Hospital — one day before his 50th wedding anniversary. Another meaningless victim of the tobacco companies. My father went through two surgeries, countless chemotherapy treatments, trips to City of Hope, UCLA, MD Anderson Cancer Center in Texas.

Is 56 the new 76? We read that 60 is the new 50. In pursuit of that concept, I was recently fortunate to experience a dynamic therapeutic massage at the hands of talented, strong Hollee Neff in a lovely studio at Second and Mermaid streets in downtown Laguna Beach. Two people I knew died in February, tragically, both at age 56. Smoking and abuse of alcohol contributed to their untimely departures. Please throw away the death sticks. If you are addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, get sober and live.

It wasn't until I built a relationship with a smoker that I developed a deep concern for the issue since my boyfriend, along with the majority of his friends, were already addicted to cigarettes before even reaching the legal age of 18. At the time, of course, I would have never said anything harsh or judgmental regarding smoking....

A jury has awarded Jodie Bullock of Newport Beach $13.8 million in punitive damages in her lawsuit against cigarette maker Philip Morris USA, six years after her mother, Betty Bullock, died of lung cancer. The jury in Los Angeles Superior Court ruled 9 to 3 Monday. Betty started smoking at age 17. She sued the cigarette giant in 2001 for fraud and was initially awarded $28 billion in damages in 2002. That ruling was reduced by a judge to $28 million before being reversed and sent to the 2nd District Court of Appeals in 2008 for a new trial.
