Top Rocker Harley-Davidson, in Canoga Park, CA, worked with this organization for The Greatest Escape motorcycle ride to benefit Mesothelioma. The team and organizers for this event were pleasant to work with, enthusiastic about the cause and event, and really brought the community together for a great cause. We had over 200 motorcycle riders attend this event, more than 3/4 of which left out of our dealership. The promoting of the event was great, flyers and artwork for social media done ahead of time, and the team was well organized the day of. This organization has helped out our dealership as well during these last few months, and we look forward to working with them in the future.
It gives me huge gratification to partner with Clare Cameron, Victoria Adams, Stephen Mascoli & the rest of the team at Pacific Center Mesothioma for a 3rd year in a row for their annual fundraiser. We hope to continue the awareness and funding for a serious cause which effects us all in some way. Thanks again to the team.

It has been a privilege to recently join as a Board Member of the Pacific Heart Lung & Blood Institute. With a heartfelt commitment to enhancing healthcare delivery, innovations and treatments, I now serve with a nonprofit organization that has aligned goals and research efforts.
Having lost precious family members to Cancer, their Mission is important to me. I am impressed with the passion and dedication of Dr. Cameron, Clare (Executive Director), staff and the research team's efforts to continue finding innovative treatments. With an in-house laboratory that is dedicated to providing highly innovative research, the Institute remains committed to converting these into timely cancer treatments.
Clare and Victoria are wonderful people who have a great team that helped with the Greatest Escape charity ride for mesothelioma. I'll always be happy to help them any way I can.
We have been to the wonderful fundraisers for mesothelioma and the Pacific Heart Lung & Blood Institute has developed and nurtured amazing events. The behind the scenes and watching these amazing care givers, Clare and Victoria Adams and all of their staff is an
incredible team effort and always a success. The organization and leaders that delegate and
market these kind of events is very difficult and a lot of hard work. I can't say enough about this staff and we have been there to witness it. Personally, I have done events but this magnitude of these kind of events takes leadership and organizing. The events are a very upscale with a lot of thought and hard works. Everything is done with class. People get involved because of the management who works so hard putting it on. We salute you Pacific Heart Lung & Blood Institute staff and all of your team!
The mission statement of the Pacific Mesothelioma Center is a simple one despite the deeply inherent complexities of the misson -- build awareness for and spearhead research goals toward prevention of the disease that bears its name. But providing a support group for its victims and their families appears to deliver the most uplifting beat of this nonprofit's march. I've attended several of its key events over the past couple of years, and the smiles of the attendees in the face of the challenges many of them face say all I need to know. The Pacific Meso Center is an organization that at its core embodies a smart and caring spirit about the conquering of a stubborn disease that results from mostly unconcerned behavior and acts. And this is the path they should continue down by maintaining their focus on the people affected and the wisest and most comprehensive ways to treat mesothelioma
After my Beautiful, Young and Healthy daughter in Law was diagnosed, K..... was so unknowledgeable in that field, they just give her a death sentence! They made her and her family feel so helpless, scare and demoralized!
A day later when we find PHLBI, Lien (Pract. Nurse) PHLNI, would ALWAYS call on her, each time Cindy had a concern she would call Lien, ( NOT K.....) Cindy felled in good hands, they were not given up on her, there is Hope and Treatments out there, and they were the right people to do so !!!!
Being given a Death Sentence is hard to take, mostly when you are way too young to accept it! Some people are not really to give up, and PHLBI give Cindy the hope that she needed to make her feel that those last months, may not be her last, unlike K.....!!!!
That is PRICELESS!
The monthly Support Caregiver conference is very helpful, we exchange ideal and recipes and I got some good ones to make her life better.
Thank you ALL at PHLBI for your devotion and support!
A special Thanks to Lien, that I feel went behind and above the line of duty! Cindy always find comfort after speaking to you!
We all need to raised awareness on that terrible practically undetectable and incurable cancer! Keep up the good work PHLBI!
Recently I attended the 5K Mesothelioma hike at the Paramount Ranch in Agoura Hills. The setting was beautiful, a set location of a western town with a backdrop of mountains that seemed to protect this magical place of a time gone by. The Pacific Heart Ling & Blood Institute thought of everything that could make the day perfect for all who attended while at the same time making sure that all of those who lost their battle with mesothelioma were remembered. I found myself walking for those I did not know personally but whom I felt deeply connected to, knowing that each step I took was honoring those who can't be there and those who are just beginning their fight with this devastating disease. What a great event for such a worthwhile cause.
As a newly appointed board member, I have been truly impressed by the Pacific Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. While PHLBI is best known internationally for its innovative research into mesothelioma, it is equally as innovative in other disease areas.
The organization has outstanding staff who are not only extremely compassionate and professional, they also possess can-do attitudes.
The recent 5K Walk/Hike for Mesothelioma was an outstanding event that exemplifies the organization's commitment more than just research. The event was more than just a fundraiser, it was a gathering of patients, families and supporters who learned from and supported each other.
There were people at the event who are currently suffering from mesothelioma, and there were families and friends there who lost someone to the disease. In fact, I was so inspired by the group that I donated onsite to the PHLBI tissue bank.
