Dying ex-smoker Maureen Hamilton, is now unrecognizable from her former glamorous self.
She said she would be happy for her photograph to be used on cigarette packets in a bid to try and persuade people to quit.
At midlife, fifty-seven year old Maureen Hamilton is suffering from deadly emphysema, and is now a bedridden invalid who relies on a ventilator to breathe.
She can only eat baby food and forceps have to be used to remove mucus from her airways to stop her choking.
“I would be willing to have my photo put on cigarette packets. I am trying to do all I can while I am alive to persuade people to quit.” ~Maureen Hamilton
