Interview with Rick Bender – Tobacco Cessation

Home » Uncategorized » Interview with Rick Bender – Tobacco Cessation


Straight Talk with Cathy lined up a great guest this week!  Rick Bender joins me in studio and shares his story about using tobacco.  Rick started using Spit Tobacco, otherwise known as Chewing Tobacco, at age 12.  By age 26, he was diagnosed with cancer and went through major surgeries.  Despite losing 1/3 of his tongue, 1/2 his jaw and 25% use of his right arm, Rick took a negative situation and made it positive by devoting his life to educating others on the dangers of using tobacco.
