Raise Awareness for National Mesothelioma Awareness Day, September 26

September 26th marks Meso Awareness Day, and every year Meso Foundation volunteers and others affected by mesothelioma participate in a coordinated campaign to raise awareness of mesothelioma and funds for research. Through local government proclamations, organizing awareness and fundraising events such as 5K walk/runs and benefits, contacting their local media to have their story covered, and letting everyone in their networks know about their efforts through word-of-mouth and social media like Facebook and Twitter, they ensure that mesothelioma is recognized.

This year, as Meso Awareness Day approaches, we want to make sure that, once again, our voices are heard far and wide. To help, visit the Meso Foundation website. We have assembled information to help you choose how you can become involved and to give you some ideas. Please take a look and contact us with any questions at
