Dying To Be Heard


I don't know about you, but I've lost a family member to Mesothelioma. I was very young and had no idea what it was or how he got it. I recently came across Heather Von St. James who which linked me to the Mesothelioma Cancer site. It's really informative. Heather is an amazing woman who has beaten the odds and is sharing her story with the word. Please take the time to read her story and support her cause on September 26th.



Be a Voice for the Victims

  • Every year around 3,000 people are diagnosed with mesothelioma, a deadly cancer caused by exposure to asbestos.
  • On average, they are given 10 months to live.
  • That’s 300 days.
  • 7,200 hours.
  • Now…

Imagine What 7,200
  • voices could do.
  • people spreading awareness.
  • people sharing a simple message that could save lives.
September 26th is Mesothelioma Awareness Day.
Please join me in spreading hope and be a voice for the victims.

So on September 26th, please Tweet, FB post or bring awareness to Mesothelioma on any social media you can. Thanks.....


  1. So sorry you lost a family member to this, Sharon. I lost my sister to breast cancer. I'll try to remember to spread the word on September 26th.

  2. Hi Sharon - Heather is an amazing woman and reading her story really does inspire. However many others will need as much help and support as they can get ... I will definitely be around supporting ... cheers Hilary

  3. I'm so sorry for your loss. I'll be more than happy to help spread the word.

  4. I am so sorry about your loss.
    I agree with you, the more knowledge we spread, the better.
    You have written a very informative post. Thanks.

  5. I'm so sorry for your loss. Thanks for the informative post. I had no idea there were so many people.

  6. =( That's Saturday, right? I'll have to see if I can't give it a shout.

  7. Dang. I'm sorry I missed this. It's just one of those illnesses that shouldn't even exist, but the diagnoses keep coming.

  8. I just read about this over on Jo's blog. I knew it was bad, but this puts it in a "better" perspective... Thanks for sharing it.

  9. I missed this, Mayhew. :( I could kick myself. I'm sorry that you lost a family member to this dreaded disease. And so many have died from it. *sigh* I loved her story. Thanks for making me more aware. xoxo
