“I leave it to you to take it from here. I must leave it to you, because I won’t be going on from here.” – June Breit (2009)
Three years ago today, we lost June Ellen “Jeb” Breit to mesothelioma at the age of 58. Today, in memory of June and in honor of Mesothelioma Awareness Day on September 26. She speaks for herself and for all of us in her video that was mailed to us after she lost her courageous mesothelioma battle. June was honored posthumously in 2010 with the Alan Reinstein Memorial Award Award and her tribute page is a deep reminder about June’s dedication, passion, and unrelenting commitment to ban asbestos and cure mesothelioma.
Please visit the ADAO Interviews playlist this week, as we honor different members of our ADAO community whose lives were affected by mesothelioma. Although mesothelioma claimed June’s life, her spirit lives on in our ADAO community. As June said, “Don’t be fooled like I once was. This isn’t something that only happens to other people. Only to those who work directly with asbestos. This is everybody’s problem. ”
Together, change is possible.
