    More info:

    The Breath of Life Foundation was established through a cooperative effort of the insulating industry – including insulating companies from the Central States Insulation Association and their Union partners who represent workers in that field, as well as other providers that serve the industry. The Foundation is primarily focused on the Midwest Region of the United States and acts in concert with other similar institutions, in seeking a cure for mesothelioma and asbestos related diseases. Because asbestos and similar carcinogenic materials were long used as key components of insulation products, everyone in that industry has potentially been exposed to one degree or another – from the worker, to the end user and even their family members. Even though new safety measures have been developed recently to deal with asbestos, the lingering health effects of this material will be felt for generations.

    The Breath of Life Foundation raises funding for mesothelioma research by holding various fundraising activities. Its primary fundraiser is the Annual Mesothelioma Charity Golf Tournament, which usually raises about $100,000. This year the event is being held August 31, 2015 at the Belterra Casino in Florence, IN.
