Mesothelioma Awareness Day (MAD) is September 26, but what do people really know about this rare disease? For the nearly 3,000 people who will receive a mesothelioma diagnosis this year, a majority of them will have been exposed to asbestos fibers decades prior to their diagnosis.Mesothelioma Awareness Day (MAD) is September 26, but what do people really know about this rare disease? For the nearly 3,000 people who will receive a mesothelioma diagnosis this year, a majority of them will have been exposed to asbestos fibers decades prior to their diagnosis.

Asbestos exposure is linked to diseases like asbestosis and mesothelioma, an aggressive cancer primarily affecting the lining of the lungs – known as the mesothelium – but can also be found in the linings of the heart or abdomen. Luckily, mesothelioma is avoidable if you take the right precautions and avoid accidental exposure.

Undamaged asbestos-containing products found in older homes and public buildings are generally safe, but can release fibers into the air if they become damaged or broken. If you think a product might contain asbestos, don’t attempt to remove it on your own! Call a licensed asbestos abatement professional and have them determine what needs to be done.

MAD isn’t just an awareness day. It’s a day to support those battling the disease and honor those who have passed away, while advocating for an eventual asbestos ban in the U.S. But until then, education and advocacy are our best tools!
