Patient Story – Joseph Carbaugh

Congratulations to Joe Carbaugh, who is now tobacco free: “I started to realize that with this program (LMH Quit for Your Health tobacco cessation program), I was going to be able to remain on this Earth a little longer and stay with my family. All my family is very proud of me. My family doctor (Thomas K. Petryk, M.D.) even congratulated me and shook my hand. If it were not for all of them, I would not have been able to quit. I am very blessed – very fortunate.” – Joe Carbaugh.
