Pacific Meso Center
accepts the very generous pledge of $500,000 from the family of
John Johnson to help build an innovative research and clinical care program between
PMC and the Department of Veterans Affairs with the purpose of improving
the way veterans are diagnosed and treated at the VA. “We want to
help other families get diagnosed as early as possible, so that patients
have a fighting chance to survive,” said Sue Johnson, widow of John Johnson.
The Johnson family encourages action with matching pledges to support the
proposed Admiral Zumwalt Mesothelioma Research and Treatment Program,
named in honor of Admiral Elmo Zumwalt, who died from mesothelioma nearly
twelve years ago, and all Veterans fighting this horrible disease.
