Smoking Cessation

Roswell Park's free smoking cessation course can help you kick your tobacco habit. Stephanie, an RPCI Smoking Cessation Coach, and Sandie, a class participant, recently discussed the course with RPCI Cancer Talk.

Roswell Park Cessation Services (RPCS) provides evidence-based, best practice tobacco cessation services to Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI) employees, state quitlines, healthplans, and employer sponsored programs.

Just Breathe

Quitting smoking is hard enough, but struggling with nicotine withdrawal while undergoing cancer treatment is a major challenge. Roswell Park’s free cessation program, Just Breathe, offers individualized quit plans and provides behavioral counseling, pharmacotherapy and cessation support to all RPCI patients and their families, and classes are available to everyone in the Western New York community. For more information, call 1-877-ASK-RPCI (1-877-275-7724).
