Casting Call: Looking for Former Smokers with Diabetes Pays $2,500!

Do you have chronic bronchitis, emphysema, or diabetes?

Have you had a heart attack or an asthma attack due to exposure to

cigarette smoke?


We are looking for people willing to share their stories about how smoking has changed

their lives. We are not looking for actors—we are looking for REAL people.

We are seeking men and women of all backgrounds:

  • Who have suffered a heart attack due to exposure to secondhand smoke (age 55 or younger)
  • Who have symptomatic COPD, including chronic bronchitis or emphysema (i.e., marked by restriction in activities or home oxygen), due to their own smoking (ages 30 through 50)
  • Who have diabetes (either Type I or Type II) and who’ve suffered health problems as a result of their continued smoking; this could include amputation of limbs, kidney failure, vision impairment, or blindness (age 55 or younger)
  • Who have had a serious asthma attack triggered by exposure to secondhand smoke (ages 18 through 30)
  • We are looking to recruit people who are:
    • Military veterans
    • LGBT
    • American Indian/Alaska Native
    • Asian American
    • African American
    • Spanish-speaking Hispanic

In order to qualify for this project, you must be:

  • A nonsmoker or have been tobacco-free for at least 6 months
  • Be willing to have a doctor sign a legal statement saying tobacco caused and/or contributed to your health condition
  • Be able to travel for filming in October 2012

We need your response immediately. Please call or e-mail:
