The ad campaign is sponsored by the American Cancer Society and American Heart Association in coordination with Smoke-Free Texas, a coalition of public health organizations including the American Lung Association, Lance Armstrong Foundation Association and Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, among others.

According to the Surgeon General, secondhand smoke is proven to cause lung cancer, heart disease, serious respiratory illnesses such as bronchitis and asthma, low birth weight and sudden infant death syndrome. It is responsible for tens of thousands of deaths in the United States each year.
