The Greatest Escape, 2014, will benefit victims of Mesothelioma and the Pacific Meso Center, in Los Angeles, CA.
The Pacific Meso Center at The Pacific Heart, Lung & Blood Institute was established in 2002 with the goal of becoming the most innovative research and treatment organization in the world for patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma, an asbestos-related cancer affecting the lining of the chest (pleura).
Mesothelioma is an aggressive form of cancer which is diagnosed in about 2,000-3,000 people in the United States every year. The asbestos fibers, finer than human hair and invisible, are easily inhaled and able to proceed past the lung and lodge in the chest lining (pleura) over a course of 20-60 years. This rare disease often goes undetected as doctors look to more common causes of the symptoms.
