Mesothelioma Awareness Day | Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation

Mesothelioma Awareness Day takes place on September 26. It was established in 2004 by Meso Foundation community members, and has been the driving force behind the movement to bring more attention and funding to this cancer.


We kick-off the 2017 campaign on September 1, so get ready to raise awareness! Here is how YOU can participate:

Paint the world blue in mesothelioma awareness: Leading up to Mesothelioma Awareness Day, wear blue, ask your family, friends, and work colleagues to wear blue, and TAKE PHOTOS! Share those photos on social media explaining why it is important to you to raise awareness, and send the photos to us so we can post them on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Purchase blue tshirts on our website, or wear anything blue that you own. Get creative! 

Share infographics, facts, important information, and other posts that we will share on our Facebook page, Twitter, and Instagram. You can find us at www.facebook.com/curemeso, www.twitter.com/curemeso, www.instagram.com/mesofoundation/.

Add a Mesothelioma Awareness frame to your Facebook profile picture. Visit

Join us on Rockefeller Plaza the morning of September 26 to participate in the audience of the Today Show, and help us raise awareness nationally.
