Why I do this event :
ROD's Benefit for Meso - A page for MESOTHELIOMA Awareness and Research in honor of and inspired by my Daddy - RICHARD O. DORSEY, whom we lost to this cancer July 9th, 2008. Please share this site with others, AND BECOME A MEMBER, share your story, photos, get needed information, keep up with events and together, we can work and believe in a CURE!
This is my Daddy, to put a face with a name and a life that was taken by Mesothelioma. He was born 1942 and went to his heavenly home on July 9th 2008. He was the strongest man I ever knew and it was so horrible to watch him fade away. He left this earthly world with his family beside him holding his hands. He will forever be in our hearts.
