The Asbestos DiseaseAwareness Organization (ADAO) is delighted to join the 500 delegates atthe 11th International Mesothelioma Interest Group Conference, September11 – 14 in Boston. iMig members include the top mesothelioma doctors,scientists and medical professionals from around the world. 


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.

ACTION ALERT: What is your six-word message for the world’sleading mesothelioma experts?

As Larry Davis, a courageous mesothelioma patient, used to stronglysay, “Believe in a Cure – believe in yourself.”   Oh Larry, weall dearly miss you, and you can bet none of us will ever stop believing.

Together,change is possible.
