September 26, 2020 is Mesothelioma Awareness Day. The incidence of mesothelioma, a rare aggressive cancer, continues to rise in Canada and around the world. It is caused almost exclusively by exposure to asbestos. Asbestos-related diseases are the number one cause of workplace death in Canada. Although asbestos is largely banned in Canada, it remains in old homes and office buildings; it doesn't just go away. We need your support to fight this terrible disease - to help raise awareness of the dangers of exposure to asbestos and to help us support those affected by mesothelioma.
