Hello, I'm new to this site but not new to other boards. I'm a 57 yr old female 20 months out with EC stage III. But I'm writing because my 54 yr old sister finished treatment in April for base of the tongue cancer, not sure the stage. It was in her neck lymph nodes. Anyway, she was a smoker and continues to smoke. I have been looking for stats on what that does to her chances. I'm sure it must decrease her odds, which from what I read were pretty good. Over 50 percent. Anyway, if anyone can direct me to a good site for this it might help in convincing her to quit.
