This year, on Mesothelioma Awareness Day, we want to paint the world in mesothelioma awareness by wearing blue!
To raise as much awareness as possible, we ask that everyone affected by this cancer, including mesothelioma patients and their families, those who have lost loved ones to mesothelioma, friends, neighbors, and acquaintances, to WEAR BLUE. The key is to keep blue as the central color of your outfit to raise awareness in person and online.
The idea is to portray visually with the color blue the concept of mesothelioma awareness as it widens its reach. Visit the Meso Foundation Store if you would like to purchase blue items for Meso Awareness Day.
Mesothelioma Awareness Day, established by Meso Foundation volunteers in 2004, has been the driving force behind the movement to bring more attention and funding to this cancer.
In the last ten years, through various activities, the Meso Foundation and its volunteers have been able to obtain "National Mesothelioma Awareness Day" proclamations by both the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives, have raised nearly a million dollars, have received local government proclamations in their states and localities, and have received dozens of instances of media coverage for their stories, events, and activities.
Help us continue this trend on September 26, 2015!
