NATIONAL Mesothelioma Awareness Day!!

Last night, the House of Representatives passed H. Res. 771 designating September 26th as “National Mesothelioma Awareness Day”! This is a national resolution that doesn’t require renewal; every September 26th, from 2011 forward, will be National Mesothelioma Awareness Day.

We would like to extend a monumental and sincere thank you to our incredible community and our advocates and allies for all of your hard work and persistence. This resolution, which was in the works for over a year, is crucial to raising national awareness of mesothelioma and we look forward to using this momentum to continue to create progress.

We will be issuing a press release later today, in conjunction with Representative Betty McCollum of Minnesota (who introduced and pushed this bill through the House), but wanted you to be the first to know about this important milestone.

Yours in the fight,

KathyKathy Wiedemer
