Well put. Yes the immunosuppressive therapy probably let the new lungs be more vulnerable to cancer, but it was still a gamble worth taking. No lungs at all, and a certain death within a short time, or at least a "chance" with smoker's lungs.
I'd take the chance.

Yeah well the British NHS didn't give this guy an arm cast because they said he was smoking...his appointment was postponed three more time...he ended up like this...
And to add injury to insult...they denied him medical benefits as they told him that as his occupation was plumber....he could still use his twisted arm to unblock toilets.
