The name may not be familiar, but the anti-smoking commercial she made was one of the most impactful of the 90’s.   She continued to make spots after being diagnosed with cancer of the larnyx.  Debi Austin lost her 20 year battle with various cancers last week.  She was 62.

This is her first commercial that garnered so much attention.  I will warn you, it’s tough to watch.
