Mesothelioma Awareness Day
This Sunday is Mesothelioma Awareness Day. In 2012, Virginia’s General Assembly designated September 26 as Mesothelioma Awareness Day in Virginia, to promote public awareness of the dangers of this deadly cancer and of asbestos exposure. Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer which develops in the mesothelium, the protective lining that covers many of the body's internal organs and is caused by asbestos exposure.
Many veterans as well as individuals who worked in shipyards, power plants, refineries, railroads, factories and other industrial settings were exposed to asbestos during the course of their employment and are at risk for contracting mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases, including lung cancer and asbestosis. Housewives and children who lived with family members who worked in these industries are also at risk for mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases.
