I am taking a personal challenge and invite you to join me.
In 1982 my father, Stan“Swede” Grimberg died of mesothelioma, and I would never be the same, justice knows no timeline. With excellent medical care and his fighting spirit, my father lived a painful 18 months. He wanted to know his granddaughter, but he left us 6 days before her first birthday. I was introduced to the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) last year, and I now have a place to turn my anger into action. I am dedicated to this organization doing its vital and important work. To do that work, it takes leadership, volunteers, and money.
Join us in honoring those we have lost, and those who are still fighting, for their lives. When we make an ADAO family tribute program donation or register for the ADAO 8th Annual Asbestos Awareness Conference, “Asbestos: Impact on Public Heath” to be held on March 30 – April 1, 2012 in Los Angeles, you are supporting advocacy, education, and outreach.
My heart soars as I honor my Dad, he is not forgotten, he would be proud…. Ann
