Today, several mesothelioma survivors and their families will visit Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. to share their stories about mesothelioma and the desperate need for meso research funding.

Your help is needed! Jessica Barker, Director of Government Affairs with the Mesothelioma Foundation, is asking that people who have been impacted by mesothelioma from across the nation to spend a few minutes and
support their efforts.

Joining the Virtual Hill Day takes the following simple steps.

Contact your legislators by visiting the Meso Foundation’s Online Action Center. There you can select your elected
officials and send them an e-mail asking them to keep the $5 million in mesothelioma research funding in the 2013 fiscal year budget.

Then, take action and spread the word to your social media friends about today’s opportunity to remind our elected officials about this orphan disease that claims so many American lives each year.

Today, with just a few clicks, you can make a difference.
