“NFL films has lost its president. Steve Sabol died last Tuesday after his long battle against a brain tumor. He passed away in Moorestown, New Jersey at age 69.
Based on reports, the businessman learned about his tumor and that it could not be removed back in March 2011. He fought it for a year and a half before finally succumbing to it. He is survived by his wife, Penny, son, Casey, parents, Audrey and Ed, and sister, Blair.”
GreenBeanBuddy.com, an entertainment and sports news website, stated that Steven Sabol should be commended for transforming sports films and for propelling the football league to what it is today.
However, about the illness that took Sabol's life away, the site has this to say: brain cancer is not the only cancer type that can cause death. Despite that, it said that there are some of them that can be avoided by kicking a certain habit. It gave smoking as an example stating that giving it up can help avoid lung cancer and throat cancer.
But yet again, it said that one would need the help of a smoking alternative to successfully kick the habit. And among the many cigarette substitutes, it stated that electronic cigarette is the best. The reason, it said, is that it is safe to use and looks and tastes just like real cigarettes.
