I was contacted by Emily Walsh, the Community Outreach Director for the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance who asked me to share an article she wrote regarding mesothelioma with all of my readers, especially those in the military community. In honor of Mesothelioma Awareness Day on September 26 please read this article and check out the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance website. This website is full of resources that can help educate us about this disease and help those who are living with it. The reason I choose to share this article and the reason I think it is imperative for our community to educate ourselves about mesothelioma is the fact that those in the military are at high risk for this disease due to exposure to asbestos. In her article, Emily explains 8 Things You Should Know About Mesothelioma. Please take a few minutes today to read this article and arm yourself with knowledge.
Here is a preview from the article:
Mesothelioma — a long word you may have heard on a commercial or two, but do you know what it means? This rare and deadly cancer is sadly lacking awareness.

The key to saving lives starts with education. -Emily Walsh
