President's Message
September was a huge month for mesothelioma awareness efforts and actions on Labor Day, 9/11, and of course, Mesothelioma day. Our RAISE YOUR VOICE || #ENDMeso campaign circled the globe.
This month, we honored the victims and heroes of 9/11. In a statement calling for the reauthorization of the James L. Zagroda 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, we asked Congress to perpetuate the much needed funding. This Act will benefit 72,000 responders and survivors from every Congressional district who are enrolled in health programs provided by this legislation.

As Congress makes moves to reform the outdated Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976 , we at ADAO are calling for a national U.S. ban on asbestos to help prevent future deaths as a result of this deadly chemical.
Truly, it is the voices of our community, that are the loudest and strongest catalysts for change. Thank you to all those who have been dedicated participants in this month's hour-long #ENDMeso Twitter Chats with our co-host and renowned health and safety expert David Cant. We encourage all of our advocates to get involved in the global conversation with our future Twitter Chats every first and third Thursday of each month.
ADAO released the 2015 Mesothelioma Warrior Memorial Video, dedicated to over 150 mesothelioma victims from around the world. Thanks to Jordan Zevon, this video features Warren Zevon's Grammy-winning song "Keep Me in Your Heart".
Thanks to your dedication and support during September. We are fiercely reminded that Mesothelioma Awareness Day is not just a date on our calendar, but a daily ADAO mantra.
As always, my thanks, 
Linda Reinstein, Social Networks
