The Meso Foundation was recently featured in a video released by a mesothelioma warrior, Heather Nash, whose goal was to correct misconception about this deadly cancer and to request that viewers support the Meso Foundation.
In the video, Heather leafs through written cardboard sheets from which the viewer learns about her story. On them, she says, “My name is Heather. I am a daughter. I am a wife. I am a mom. I was a nurse. I was healthy. I have cancer. Mesothelioma. Average life expectancy: 9 to 18 months. I need your help to find a cure. Please give at curemeso.org.”
When asked about her reason for making the video, Heather explains that her goal was to show that the face of meso often isn’t the one seen on late night TV commercials.
“This cancer does not discriminate and I am an example of that,” says Heather.
“Also, being a relatively rare cancer, research into it gets little funding. I hope this video can help change that,” she added.
