WOW, I challenged our members to clean their closets and, boy, did they! Take a look at how full the veterans pod was on Friday, May 14th. Well by Wednesday afternoon, May 26th, it will be empty again. All I can say is go for it you closet cleaners! As of Wednesday, May 26th, our yearly total is $42,180!
Remember, the pod is not locked, so both you and your neighbors can make a donation anytime. Please make sure all donations are made in strong bags tied at the top to make it easier for us to handle them. Boxes are OK to use (say for books or small items), but please make sure they do not weigh more than 20 pounds.
We still need new clothing like the basic socks, shorts, t-shirts, jeans, sweaters, and heavy shirts for our homeless vets. Please use the green barrel in the lounge for your donations. If you wish to contribute, but don’t want to go out to shop for your donation, you can send a check, or drop off money in the Vet jar on the bar and we will do the shopping for the needed items.
Thank you again to our lodge members for your generosity for those who gave so much to our country’s safety and freedom.
Mesothelioma life expectancy is a prediction a doctor makes regarding how long a patient can expect to live after a mesothelioma diagnosis. The average life expectancy for mesothelioma is 12-21 months. However, many people live longer than this depending on their mesothelioma type, stage at diagnosis, and overall health. Doctors work with patients to improve their life expectancy through personalized treatment plans.
My name is David Sides and I'm a member of the Outreach Department for The Pleural Mesothelioma Center.
Countless veterans are currently suffering from life-threatening illnesses that are a result of exposure to asbestos, a material that was commonly used in hundreds of military applications, products, and ships because of its resistance to fire. Veterans who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma even qualify for special benefits from the U.S Department of Veteran Affairs.
We recently published an educational guide about pleural mesothelioma, the most common type of mesothelioma.
