Why i chose this topic

i chose this topic because recently my grandpa a heavy smoker has been diagnosed with stage four COPD, his heart only works at 25%, and the doctors have said it will never get any better. it will continue to decrease over time, and he also has other health issues which all mainly was caused by him smoking.
