Today marks the 6th annual National Mesothelioma Awareness Day, a day of remembrance and awareness of the disease that has tragically claimed the lives of so many. National Mesothelioma Awareness Day was first established in 2009 when the United States Senate passed Resolution 288 designating September 26th as a national day of observation and awareness. The following year, the House of Representatives recognized the importance of creating national awareness and passed a similar bill, House Resolution 771. The State of New Jersey has similarly dedicated September 26th of each year as a “Mesothelioma Awareness Day” via Joint Resolution No. 122.
Keefe Law Firm has been representing victims of asbestos-related diseases for over two decades. As we honor and remember the countless men and women who have been tragically affected by mesothelioma, we hope that National Mesothelioma Awareness Day continues to raise awareness and brings us one step closer to a cure.
