September 26 is Mesothelioma Awareness Day

The amazing thing about the internet is that what we post gets seen right across the world, making the world a smaller place and us all closer together. We recently received the following email from the USA and we thought you might be interested:

DYING TO BE HEARD

Be a Voice for the Victims

My name is Cameron Von St. James. I wanted to reach out to you and let you know about a campaign that my wife and I have put together with the help of the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance.  September 26 is Mesothelioma Awareness Day, and we are trying to get 7200 voices talking and sharing about this rare cancer, to represent the 7200 hours that the average mesothelioma patient has to live. 

My wife is a rare survivor of mesothelioma, so this day obviously means a lot to us. We aren’t asking for time, money, or donations of any kind, just voices to spread the word about this awful, and sadly little known cancer. Your blog, Older People Living With Cancer is very impressive! I was hoping that you would help support our cause by posting a link to our campaign page, so that your readers can use their voices as well! 

Here is the link, please let me know what you think when you get a chance to take a look.  Your help would mean the world to us!

Hopefully you find this and the web link as moving as we do.

  1. Admiring the persistence you put into your website and in depth information you
    present. It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same unwanted rehashed material.
    Excellent read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google
    account.
