President's Message

ADAO is eager to share our November eNewsletter!   October was another amazing month for awareness and action as we joined global forces to accomplish a number of important projects.
 
Here are a few eNewsletter highlights:
 
Ban Asbestos Legislation
There are several bills pending in Congress as previously reported. ADAO continues to be a stakeholder at the legislative table. We are hoping to report good news soon.
 
Twitter Chats
We encourage all of our advocates to get involved in the global conversation with our #ENDMeso Twitter Chats every first and third Thursday of each month.
  
Annual Mesothelioma Warrior Candle Lighting
Tisha, Jill's daughter, has written a wonderful blog about her mother's candle lighting tradition to honor those in loving memory and in support.
 
Educational Campaigns
We saw great success and engagement during our four-part series for Health Literacy Month in October.  We look forward to continuing our educational initiatives by participating in Lung Cancer Awareness Month and Family Caregivers Month during November. Finally, ADAO is excited to be launching our first-ever #GivingTuesday Crowdriser fundraising campaign.
 
In this month of Thanksgiving, ADAO sincerely thanks our supporters.  Whether by donating, signing a petition, sharing your story, or re-posting information through social media, your voice matters.
 
As always, my thanks, Linda Reinstein, Social Networks
