LUNG FORCE Heroes
My brother was diagnosed with mesothelioma just 2 months ago. He was not aware of symptoms.
He has been a farmer for over 40 years. None of us knew you could get this disease from being a farmer until now.
The exposure to grain dust, sprays, chemicals used in production of crops and soils. It hit us like a ton of bricks. He is going through chemo now. We are hoping and praying for his recovery or remission. I pray for all of you with this terrible disease.
I am hoping with contributions and dedication, we can beat this disease and find a cure. AMEN.
