Welcome to the Canadian Mesothelioma Foundation

Founded in 2008, the Canadian Mesothelioma Foundation is a registered charity dedicated to raise awareness and understanding about mesothelioma in Canada. Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that is almost exclusively linked to asbestos exposure. The aim of the CMF is to both initiate and foster a support network for patients with mesothelioma and their families, and to support the development of a community of health professionals in the field of mesothelioma diagnosis, treatment and care across Canada.

An Open Letter To the Members of Parliament of Canada
Thank you for the opportunity to connect with you today.

My name is David Hill, I am 55 years, a husband and father of three, and I live in a small town in Alberta - but only for the next 2 to 5 years, according to my doctor.

I have a rare, terminal cancer called Mesothelioma that has only one cause, and that is contact with the mineral Asbestos.

Mesothelioma Awareness Day

September 26th, 2015 is Mesothelioma Awareness Day. The incidence of mesothelioma, an extremely aggressive cancer, continues to rise. It is now one of the top causes of death in the workplace in Canada. Although the use of new asbestos in Canada has decreased, it remains in old homes and office buildings; it doesn’t just go away.
