|Our Annual 5k Walk/Hike for Meso is taking place on Sunday, October 12, 2014. We are raising funds and awareness for Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma. 100% of the funds we raise go to support our 2 research labs. We are also raising funds to open up a center of excellence for mesothelioma at the Los Angeles VA Hospital. 1/3 of the people who get mesothelioma are vets and need our help.|
