Action Mesothelioma Day

Action Mesothelioma Day is Friday 2 July 2021. Mesothelioma is a deadly cancer usually caused by breathing in asbestos dust.   

Claire and Emma lost their dad, their best friend, to lung disease. He died just five weeks after he was diagnosed with lung cancer. Now, they're training for the London Marathon to raise for funds for research. Will you join them in donating towards our research?

Mesothelioma takes a long time to develop. It’s normal for people to get the first symptoms 30 to 40 years after they were first exposed to asbestos.

What is mesothelioma?

This information explains what mesothelioma is, the different types and who might be at risk.

Right now, there's no cure for this deadly disease. But you can help change this. We've spent over £10.8 million on mesothelioma research but there's still such a long way to go. Will you make a donation and help us find a cure?

Your mesothelioma stories

Thank you to everyone that has donated towards our mesothelioma research including the Victor Dahdaleh Foundation, Mick Knighton Mesothelioma Research Fund and Catalina. As well as our mesothelioma patrons GA Solicitors, and past patrons Humphreys & Co. and Simpson Millar. Without your donations the pioneering mesothelioma research which provides hope and is making a difference to people living with mesothelioma wouldn’t be possible.

Action Meso is producing a national virtual Action Mesothelioma Day event that we encourage anyone affected by mesothelioma to join.
