Staff from our firm participated in the American Cancer Society’s “Bite the Tail Off Cancer” Crawfish Boil event on Saturday, April 4th, at Riverfront Park. The annual event, sponsored by the ACS Junior Executive Board, seeks to raise funds for the American Cancer Society. The event was attended by more than 800 people, and provided an opportunity for the firm to share information and raise awareness about mesothelioma, a deadly cancer caused only by exposure to asbestos.
This year, the event coincided with National Asbestos Awareness Week, April 1-7, 2009, which was recognized by a U.S. Senate resolution. On the local level, Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange presented a proclamation declaring Asbestos Awareness Week in Montgomery. Our firm has a website, www.myMeso.org, and provides a mesothelioma and asbestos awareness outreach program. Since 2008, myMeso.org has provided a forum to connect people affected by mesothelioma through an active blog-based web site and hands-on activities such as the crawfish boil. Outreach efforts were expanded in 2009 to include contributions to help support mesothelioma research through the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation.
During the crawfish boil event, staff from our firm distributed information about mesothelioma and the dangers of asbestos, and asked attendees to sign a petition to completely ban asbestos products in the United States. Wendi Lewis from our firm, a writer for myMeso.org, will visit Washington, D.C., in June to learn more about mesothelioma and ask Alabama’s Congressional delegates to support a complete asbestos ban.
