Mesothelioma Events

Every year, organizations come together to host mesothelioma events designed to raise awareness about the rare asbestos cancer and other asbestos-related diseases. In addition, survivors, caregivers and advocates participate in broader national health observances to better educate the public about the dangers of asbestos and promote support for those affected by these rare diseases.

National Family Caregiver Month

Where: United States

After a loved one’s mesothelioma diagnosis, many family members take on a new role to help their loved one: Caregiver. Being a family caregiver is both rewarding and challenging.

Veterans Day

Where: United States

Did you know veterans account for nearly 30 percent of mesothelioma legal claims? Asbestos was used in every branch of the U.S. military, which greatly increased the risk of veterans developing mesothelioma. On Veterans Day, we honor and remember the brave men and women who fought for our country only to come home and fight mesothelioma.
