Hi again Renee, I really appreciate you getting back to me. I work as the Community Outreach Director for the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance. Mesothelioma Awareness Day has passed and our campaign was a huge success! Being that it is Lung Cancer Awareness Month, I am contacting bloggers like you in the cancer community to ask for help in continuing the momentum to spread awareness. Fortunately, because mesothelioma is a completely preventable cancer affecting the lining of the lungs (caused only by asbestos exposure), knowing more about the disease and its risk factors truly does make a difference.
Attached is the mesothelioma facts sheet that I used for the campaign this year. I would love it if you’d be willing to share it on your blog for your community. Please let me know if you have any questions and I would be more than willing to answer them. With your support in raising more awareness, hopefully one day we can get asbestos banned once and for all!
