During our 2017 Symposium, we honored our executive director, Mary, with a video as she prepares for her upcoming retirement. Watch it at curemeso.org/mary, where you can also leave a thank you comment for Mary and contribute to the newly established Mary Hesdorffer Mesothelioma Research Fund. Our goal is to raise $500,000 for the fund by the time Mary departs on July 15!
