Fornearly nine years, I have been attending and presenting at iMig conferences inChicago, Amsterdam, Kyoto, and now Boston. iMig carries the torch of hopefor a cure for mesothelioma patients and their families. I look forward tosharing information about the new trends in treatment, advances in research and innovative ideas with you.
ADAOwill have a booth at the conference where we will share information about ourorganization and our active online community. Barbara McQueen,widow of the late Steve McQueen, has autographed a copy of her newly-publishedbook, “Steve McQueen: The Last Mile… Revisited”, which ADAO will present to theiMig members and also raffle a copy!
Wehave come such a long way since my husband Alan was diagnosed in 2003. In thosedays, all we could do was enter “mesothelioma+ doctor” into a searchengine. Now, It is a thrill for me to bring this cutting-edge medicalinformation to those who need it most through ADAO, the largest non-profitonline community for those living with an asbestos-related disease.
