Mesothelioma a rising threat

Mesothelioma is a rare cancer caused by asbestos exposure. Mesothelioma is expected to increase as older structures deteriorate.

The Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation (www.curemeso.org) is attempting to establish Sept. 26 as an annual Mesothelioma Awareness Day and is requesting that individual states and Congress recognize this date.

Kentucky Senate Bill 62 is intended to honor the memory of former state representative Ron Cyrus, who died of mesothelioma.
