Jason lost his grandfather to lung cancer 15 years ago after being an avid smoker for 40 years. Although his grandfather quit once he found out his diagnosis, the damage had already been done. Jason’s grandfather instilled in him the importance of not smoking from an early age and this passion for cancer prevention continues today. He is proud to be a part of the Cancer Council SA Board for his grandfather.
