Changes to the Meso Foundation Symposium

SymposiumInsideBanner

I’m well behind the updates to this year’s Meso Foundation Symposium. I ran into a huge road block in my personal life trying to make sense of a Meso related death and all that has happened since and I have clearly not been strong enough to keep up like I did when I was up keeping this site for my father.

A lot has changed, even in the last year, and things are changing within the Foundation and with the Symposium. But rest assured the most important things will absolutely be the same.

There will be an incredible outpouring of support and caring. People like Mary Hesdorffer will be there with amazing insight and availability (don’t get me wrong, she’ll be super busy, but somehow she defies the space-time continuum with personal conversations and help). The Meso Foundation team will put on another outstanding conference and the attendees will all have experiences to share. If you haven’t made plans and can, definitely go. You will find a support group who will help you every step of the way. And as I read earlier, ‘give yourself permission’ to miss something or cry or express yourself. I didn’t and it only hurts me now.

A few things to note this year … there are 2 events happening. 1st the International Symposium on Malignant Mesothelioma and 2nd the Mesothelioma Scientific Seminar. You will be able to see much of the event via their LIVE STREAM . It has moved from Vegas last year back to the DC area. The host hotel is the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center. Also as you may have seen it is much earlier in the year from the 2012 Symposium.

Some Good News In My Battle With Mesothelioma

Another major accomplishment in my battle with Peritoneal Mesothelioma Cancer …
On Tuesday the 11th I returned from the University of Maryland Greenbaum Cancer Center

the view from my room

where my main doctor is H Richard Alexander. Dr Alexander reviewed my MRI with the Radiology Chief and confirmed that the combination of Carboplatin and Alimta has actually shrunk the size of many of my abdominal tumors. I was about to blow off any further treatment using dangerous Chemo with it awful side effects. It has opened the door for further surgery and a possible clinical trial with Dr. Dipnarine Maharaj.

I hope you will join me, Dr Raja Flores, Chief of Surgery Mount Sinai NYC, Dr Alexander, Dr Dipnarine Maharaj Oncologist & Director of the South Florida Bone Marrow Transplant Institute, and others Feb 11 2012 at 3 PM at the Hilton Hotel Deerfield Beach to learn the latest . I will be there too. RSVP Larry Davis mesosurvivor@aol.com for your reservation. 80% already filled. Act now – no charge for the symposium. Find more information at www.actionagainstasbestos.com.
