Pleural Mesothelioma & Susan Vento

I recently received the following email and post it for your consideration.

Hello John,

My name is Susan Vento. My husband Bruce was a member of the US House of Representatives—until October 10th, 2000, when everything changed. Bruce died of pleural mesothelioma—a rare disease caused by asbestos exposure that kills 90-95% of those who have it. Not many people know about this terrible disease, which lead me to reach out to you; I noticed that you have an influential cancer site full of great information. I am hoping you will help me spread awareness about asbestos cancers and help to protect the rights of those who have been affected by mesothelioma and other cancers. 

I am spokesperson for a great online resource called the Cancer Victims’ Rights Campaign ( that fights to protect cancer victims and their families. I wrote a blog piece ( and would love if you could read it, share it and incorporate your thoughts. Your support, and the support of your online community, can make the difference to ensure justice for all cancer victims and their loved ones.

Thank you for joining me in my fight to educate people about such a deadly disease. Our ultimate goal is to help those who have suffered from all forms of cancer in their struggle to seek health and justice.
