Smoking Cessation Counseling for Cancer Patients

It’s never too late to quit smoking. Doing so will improve your breathing, help with pain management and empower you to cope with your cancer treatments.

Simon Cancer Center patients and their family members only. For more information and to make an appointment, please call 973-971-7971.
