Mesothelioma Awareness Day 2010 -- Join the Meso Foundation on September 26 in New York City for a taping of the Today Show

This year's Mesothelioma Awareness Day is promising to be the biggest and most impactful yet! With a National Mesothelioma Awareness Day bill close to passing, and along with all of your events, proclamations and radio play requests, this year, mesothelioma will also be prominently featured on a 14x6-foot banner in the heart of New York City. 

We are excited to announce that EHE International has generously donated the 10 Rockefeller Plaza display window for the entire month of September, and the Meso Foundation will utilize the space to promote awareness of mesothelioma during this important month. We expect this banner (and the video which will fit in the grey area of the banner) to reach thousands of New Yorkers and visitors.

To maximize this incredible opportunity, please join the Meso Foundation in New York City on September 26th for the taping of the Sunday edition of the Today Show. As it is customary for spectators of the Today Show, we encourage you to create your own attention-getting and informational Meso Awareness Day sign. Feel free to contact us if you need any help or to brainstorm any ideas.

Stay tuned for more information in the next few weeks, and in the meantime, please contact Danelle Mangone at (703) 879-3823 or dmangone@curemeso.org with any questions.
