On November 25, the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation (Meso Foundation) unveiled its year-end "Peace.Joy.Cure" social media fundraising campaign in conjunction with #GivingTuesday, an effort to bring attention to the act of giving back and to charity.

The campaign will be promoted on the Foundation’s Facebook page and Twitter account and will last until December 31.

Mesothelioma is a malignant tumor of the lining of the lung, abdomen, or heart known to be caused by exposure to asbestos. Medical experts consider it one of the most aggressive and deadly of all cancers. Approximately 3,500 Americans are diagnosed with mesothelioma every year and an estimated one-third were exposed while serving in the Navy or working in Navy shipyards.
