A Son's Quest for Justice
After his mother died from a lifetime of smoking, one man seeks justice against tobacco companies:
"By late summer 2001, her cough was heartbreaking. She complained of backaches, and Will Evans could see his mother spitting out blood.
It would be only weeks before he was forced to leave his job to bring her to doctor’s appointments, and it was only months before she died.
But all along, at Marie Evans’s Roxbury home, at her doctor’s office, at her death bed, her only son was by her side. Even while she gave depositions under the attack of lawyers, the last chance to explain her story of how she started smoking as a teenager and why she couldn’t quit, he stayed with her."
