My excitement to share is even greater this month than usual. September has left me with a rush of optimism that we are closer than ever to finally achieving the asbestos ban we've been working toward so hard!
With respect and sadness, we published our
2016 Mesothelioma Warrior Memorial Video
eaturing "Keep Me In Your Heart" by Warren Zevon.
This year, we had more than 200 dedications, reflecting the power of unity, community, and hope.
Solidarity was in true force at the 8th Annual Miles for Meso Race in Alton, IL. There were 31 Mesothelioma Warrior Virtual Teams and nearly 1,000 race day runners uniting for a shared goal: to ban asbestos and find a cure. Through incredible generosity, proceeds will benefit ADAO's education, advocacy, and community support efforts.
October is Health Literacy Month; keep an eye out for ADAO's four-part series focusing on prevention, high-risk occupations, early warning symptoms, and treatment of asbestos diseases. Education saves lives, so please share these important blogs on social media.
Together, we are making change happen.
