Using Education, Advocacy and Community

ADAO Co-Founder and President Linda Reinstein explains what it was like to lose her husband Alan to mesothelioma, a cancer she hadn’t heard of before. Finding out his death could’ve been prevented has fueled her 20-year fight to ban asbestos and prevent all asbestos-related diseases.

Each year at Miles for Meso, Linda looks forward to joining a community of mesothelioma survivors and warriors to raise awareness about the dangers of asbestos exposure and walk together with a shared experience and purpose.

“Miles for Meso has been an amazing resource for ADAO. I love Simmons Hanly Conroy. They are so genuine,” Linda explained. “The funds are remarkable. They help us to continue our 20-year mission of preventing exposure to eliminate all asbestos caused diseases.”

Hear Linda’s story now and learn how she uses education, advocacy and community to support the countless of other Alans out there.
