An exclamation point to end another mesothelioma awareness month, we invited “Big John” to our Mount Pleasant office. This truck is a mobile memorial to Charleston Fire Department Battalion Chief John Winn who lost his battle with mesothelioma in 2012.

Today is dear to my heart. It will be 2 years in February that I will have lost my dad to Mesothelioma.... cancer SUCKS. For the person with it and all the people around it. - Mesothelioma is a type of cancer- it develops from the thin layer of tissue that covers many of the internal organs (known as the mesothelium). The most common area affected is the lining of the lungs and chest wall and this is where my dads cancer formed. - This is a slow growing cancer and by the time you have symptoms from this type of cancer it is usually in the later stages. Life expectancy for most a grim 6-12 months. We were fortunate to have my dad for almost 3 years while he battled this horrible and heart wrenching disease. When he was much younger he worked with drywall. Back then dry wall contained vermiculite which used to contain asbestos. Asbestos is what caused the cancer. While working to provide for our family he was unknowingly breathing in asbestos particles. Let me tell you... Watching someone you love slowly fade away is not something I would wish for ANYONE to have to endure. - They have so much anxiety, sadness, depression, and fear. Fear of the unknown, fear of death and fear of being forgotten. - His cancer was inoperable, and chemo and radiation were not an option as he had lost so much weight prior to his diagnosis. He had been going to the doctor for over a year with constant bouts of pneumonia and overall feelings of malaise. He was being told repeatedly when he said something was wrong that it was “ all in his head”. His doctor was on vacation and he was super sick and went to a walk in clinic. The doctor there sent him for an X-ray and he was immediately sent to the ER. He had been walking around with a collapsed lung for weeks unknown. - My biggest hope in sharing this is that people are aware of mesothelioma and even more so that if you don’t feel great.... you know your own - you know if something isn’t right. Be an advocate for yourself - get a second or third opinion if you need to. No knows your better than you. With my dads case perhaps he would have had more time 💔 -in others maybe it could be more

Today is #MesotheliomaAwarenessDay. My dad was diagnosed a year and seven months ago. I'm sharing this photo of my dad taken back before he was diagnosed. Back when he didn't have to worry about his health. Back when he didn't have to worry how long he had to live. This has affected my whole family since before I was born. My grandma died 38 years ago from Mesothelioma. Let's today by stopping the use of Asbestos. No more!
