Tuesday, May 1, 2012

The mesothelioma attorneys at our law firm are pleased to announce that Virginia has become the 11th state to pass a permanent proclamation establishing Sept. 26 as Mesothelioma Awareness Day. The proclamation passed the Virginia House and Senate on Feb. 29 and was signed by Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell on April 30. During the ceremonial signing, Governor McDonnell was surrounded by advocates from the Virginia Breast Cancer Foundation and American Cancer Society, two groups which helped push the legislation expanding Virginia’s support for cancer research, education and treatment.
