I Can’t Breathe A Smoker’s Story

DVD, 2002, CDC, 19 minutes, Middle School

This video was created one year after “I Can’t Breathe” was completed. Pam Laffin, about whom that video was based, later died from her smoking-related illness. This video tells the compelling story of Pam Laffin who started smoking as a young girl and, as a result, died from ¬†a smoking-related disease. It might be upsetting to some students who have family members who smoke. The video is shown in segments and is accompanied by an activity guide for the teacher.
