I was recently contacted by someone who is the Community Outreach Director for 'The Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance' and they have asked me to share something with you in order to try and help increase awareness of this very rare type of cancer.
Mesothelioma Awareness Day passed a few weeks ago and I have decided to try and educate people and make them more aware about this type of cancer. Mesothelioma is a completely preventable cancer and is only caused by exposure to asbestos. As you may or may not know, asbestos has been used in buildings and other structures in the past, but through this post I hope to teach you all a little more about the disease and it's risk factors.
I'm not trying to scare anyone with these facts, simply trying to increase people's awareness and get you supporting the cause!! You can learn more about Mesothelioma and the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance by going to their website: www.mesothelioma.com
