"With more than 2,000 new cases diagnosed each year, the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation’s work is more important than ever," said Randy Gori of Gori Julian & Associates, P.C.

In 2005 the United States Senate designated the first week in April as Asbestos Awareness Week, an attempt to educate Americans about the toxic material used in a variety of applications such as building materials and vehicle brakes. This week of designation comes several months after Midwest law firm, Gori Julian & Associates, P.C. (http://www.gorijulianlaw.com) launched its own independent awareness campaign aimed at raising funds for research of Mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer that is caused by exposure to asbestos.
The firm has invested in “Cure 4 Meso” wristbands that they will distribute for free upon request to those interested in raising awareness about the disease. Gori Julian & Associates will then make a donation to the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation (MARF) for each bracelet distributed nation-wide. The campaign began in September 2011, and will continue indefinitely.
“In recognition of Asbestos Awareness Week we wanted to remind the general public about the harm of asbestos exposure and bring light on the important work and research underway by MARF. We proudly support their efforts and encourage people across the country to contact us for an awareness bracelet so we can make a donation to this important cause, while also spreading the word about their work,” said Randy Gori of Gori Julian & Associates, P.C.
MARF is a nation-wide non-profit organization dedicated to providing education and support for those suffering with mesothelioma and their families, and by advocating for federal funding for mesothelioma research.
Gori adds, “With more than 2,000 new cases diagnosed each year, the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation’s work is more important than ever. We hope the nation will help us in raising awareness and take our willingness to make a contribution to mesothelioma research on their behalf as a way of paying tribute to all of those who have suffered, or are currently suffering, from this terrible disease.”
