: : Hi! This doesn't necessarily answer the question, but a story is told about Jack being asked to perform in a cancer benefit by a friend. He agreed to perform,but could not promote it on his radio show.
His reason: "Because I am sponsored by a cigarette program we are not permitted at any time to mention the word 'cancer'. Please keep this confidential for my sake."
