Mesothelioma Awareness Day

It’s Mesothelioma Awareness Day and I have decided to lend my voice to aid in the efforts of awareness. Education is key to keeping ourselves and our families healthy. There are so many different types of diseases, it is critical that we educate ourselves.


  • Every year around 3,000 people are diagnosed with mesothelioma, a deadly cancer caused by exposure to asbestos.
  • On average, they are given 10 months to live.
  • That’s 300 days.
  • 7,200 hours.


Please take a moment to watch this video, it is truly a triumph to watch this woman, wife and mother persevere despite the odds.
