"As the Surgeon General states, 'Enough is Enough'. Today's report gives us stark figures and a stern warning," said Dr. Gary Wheeler, Medical Director for the Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Program at the Arkansas Department of Health.

"We must take immediate and bold action to protect the lives of everyone in Arkansas, and especially our children," Wheeler added.

A Place to Call Home: Siyeasha and Quaneasha

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -It's been nearly four years since we first met Siyeasha and Quaneasha, along with their brothers and older sister at the Museum of Discovery. A lot has changed since then. Their brothers were adopted. Their older sister aged out of foster care.

So in February of 2011 we featured just the girls. Still today, they have no forever home. Now, our third meeting with Siyeasha and Quaneasha, and it was a day of pampering at the Paul Mitchell Imagine Salon.

Each girl got a consultation with a stylist. After that, it was time to relax while their hair was washed and rinsed. Under the dryers, each got to know the women giving them time and attention.

"This was good," says Quaneasha. "I thought about coming here, getting my hair done and I liked it here. I give them a thumbs up because they did very good on my hair!"

"It was awesome, it was exciting," shares Siyeasha.
