THE STORY:

It is a privilege to kayak in memory of Sammy's joy for life and free spirit. He would be so proud that even in his absence he would live on in research efforts. Sam, was diagnosed with Sarcomatoid Pleural Mesothelioma in June of 2012. He was given a six month mortality diagnosis, No Cure. Although he fought a valiant fight against all odds , he lost the battle within a year, the average life expectancy for this disease. Sam’s diagnosis was a direct result from his exposure to asbestos while serving in the United States Navy, for over 20 years. Sam’s greatest desire was to make this sacrifice count, he was willing to be involved in any trial that might further the next man’s chance. The Mesothelioma Research Foundation was instrumental in helping us to understand this diagnosis , to encourage us with online support groups, medical advice and clinical trial recommendations. The Mesothelioma Research Foundation, MARF, has been instrumental in providing seed money for mesothelioma research where almost no other research funds were established. MARF’S funding objectives are twofold: to directly fund basic Meso research and support mesothelioma clinical trials in worthy, peer-reviewed, projects as well as to stimulate additional federal research funding . Charity Navigator has awarded the Meso Foundation its highest rating, reserved for organizations that exceed industry standards and outperform most charities in their cause. Charity Navigator is the nation’s largest and most utilized evaluator of charities with the mission to guide intelligent giving. The Meso Foundation is the only mesothelioma charity to receive a 4-star rating. curemeso.org
