Description

Mother's Day Meso Run is an nonprofit that's organizing the Mother’s Day Weekend Meso Run 2018 to raise awareness about mesothelioma and benefit the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation (Meso Foundation), a registered 501(c)(3) that is close to our hearts. We hope to make this an annual event to help the Meso Foundation even more.


Mesothelioma is a rare but deadly cancer often caused by exposure to asbestos. Research on mesothelioma lags behind that for other cancers, and patients face difficult treatments and poor prognoses. Thanks to the Meso Foundation, that is changing. The Meso Foundation is a non-profit, charity organization dedicated to ending mesothelioma and the suffering it causes, by funding research, educating and supporting patients and their families, and advocating for federal funding of mesothelioma research.
