The Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) has been hosting Twitter chats for mesothelioma victims and others on Tuesdays all through the month of September.

“Currently in the United States, we are witnessing one of the most crucial moments in Toxic Chemical reform and it is the closest we have been to an asbestos ban since 1989,” says ADAO founder Linda Reinstein whose husband died of mesothelioma.

The final #ENDMeso chat will take place on Twitter on Tuesday, September 22 from 12 to 1 Eastern Time. The topic will be "What Are You Doing for Mesothelioma Awareness Day"?

“Shared stories can be a vital way for mesothelioma patients to find support and hope,” says Alex Strauss, Managing Editor of Surviving Mesothelioma. “The inspiring story of the world’s longest living mesothelioma survivor, Paul Kraus, is a perfect example.”

Seventy-year-old Kraus, who is still living 18 years after his 1997 diagnosis, is the author of “Surviving Mesothelioma and Other Cancers: A Patient’s Guide”, available for free exclusively on the Surviving Mesothelioma website.
