Delay, Deny until they Die.
Throughout his life, Randy worked multiple manufacturing jobs in both Tennessee and Georgia. During these years he was exposed to asbestos multiple times. In November 2008, Randy was diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma – a month later he had his right lung removed. Still battling this deadly disease, Randy had surgery in 2010 to remove tumors from his left lung. He coupled this surgery with rounds of chemotherapy and radiation. While preparing for his third surgery, Randy passed away from the disease.
Randy was only 55 when he died. He left behind a loving wife and fourteen-year-old son.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) have assisted asbestos corporations in covering-up the dangers of asbestos, vilifying the victims and misleading the public with propaganda.
It is offensive that the same corporations that hid the dangers of asbestos for decades and caused hundreds of thousands of deaths are now trying to avoid accountability by accusing families of “fraud.”
Stand up to corporate interests pushing their agenda in Congress. Stand up for Randy and hundreds of thousands like him.
