Pennsylvania – Asbestos Company – Asbestos Claims

Pennsylvania company is 89th to collapse under asbestos claims 
4/23/2010 10:39 AM By Steve Korris

 

 

PHILADELPHIA - Durabla Manufacturing, aPennsylvania company that made sealing products, collapsed under the weight of 108,000 asbestos suits.

U.S. District Judge Eduardo Robreno of
Philadelphia, responsible forasbestos claims nationwide, received notice on April 12 of Durabla's bankruptcy.

Asbestos litigation has bankrupted 89 companies in 28 years, according to the Crowell Moring firm in Washington. Among the earliest was Johns-Manville in 1982; and among the latest was General Motors last year. 

Durabla received its first asbestos claim in 1980, Mark Eckard of Wilmington wrote for owner David Moser on Jan. 7.

Primary coverage of $8.5 million lasted until 2002, Eckard wrote, paying 16,017 claims at an average of $531.

Durabla had closed about 62,000 cases without payment by then, he wrote, but about 79,000 cases remained open between 2002 and 2009.

Durabla showed a profit in 2002, he wrote, and retained earnings of $1,113,555.

It showed a profit three of the next four years, he wrote, but sales didn't cover overhead and Durabla ceased operation in 2007.

It has spent cash and marketed securities to wind up its affairs, defend litigation and protect insurance coverage, he wrote.

As of last June 30, he wrote, it had $318,847 in cash and $1.5 million in coverage.

Eckard represents Moser, who is being sued personally over asbestos claims. 

Moser started an adversary proceeding in bankruptcy court, seeking a declaration that he wouldn't have to defend asbestos suits individually.

Eckard wrote that as Durabla exhausted coverage in 2008, claimants started suing Moser and two companies as alter egos.

Durabla lawyer Chad Toms of Wilmington did not submit a list of creditors to bankruptcy court, instead identifying 20 firms with the most plaintiffs.

Weitz and Luxenberg, of New York City,leads the group with 33,649 plaintiffs.

Jaques Admiralty Law Firm of Detroit nearly matches that, with 33,111.

Peter Angelos and Peter Nicholl of Baltimore represent about 8,000 and 7,000.

Morris, Sakalarios and Blackwell of Hattiesburg, Miss.,represents about 5,000.

About 4,000 suits come from other Mississippi firms: Conway and Martin of Gulfport; Byrd and Associates of Jackson; Foster Law Group of Ocean Springs; and Porter and Malouf of Ridgeland.

Brent Coon and Associates of Dallasrepresents about 3,000, and so does Wilentz, Goldman and Spitzer of New York City.

Motley Rice of Mount Pleasant, S.C., did not make the list, but it entered an appearance in bankruptcy court 15 days after Durabla filed its petition.

 Pennsylvania – Asbestos Trades – $2.5 Million Asbestos Lawsuit

Southern Illinois cases included in asbestos MDL: 94-year-oldTennesseean among plaintiffs
5/15/2009 5:21 AM By SteveKorris 

Robreno

PHILADELPHIA -Rubert Ellington ofTennessee, 94-years-old, claims his former employers owe him $2.5 million for wrecking his health.

Ellington sued Illinois Central Railroad atU.S. district court inEast St. Louis in 2007, claiming itexposed him to harmful asbestos from 1959 to 1979.

Lawyer William Gavin ofBelleville added a claim that BNSF similarly harmed him from 1957 to 1959.

Gavin's complaint showed he was born in 1914.

On Thursday, May 14, Ellington answered his phone inMilan,Tenn. and said he couldn't hear well.

He heard a question about his age and said he was born Sept. 21, 1914.

In answer to the next question he said he couldn't hear. He hung up.

His claim will vanish unless Gavin rescues it from swift disposal by U.S. District Judge EduardoRobreno ofPhiladelphia.

Robreno, responsible for pretrial proceedings in asbestos suits from federal courts around the nation, has cleared away claims at a rate of 6,000 a day this year.

He took over the docket last year and required each plaintiff to state a claim against each defendant rather than a blanket claim against all defendants.

Where many plaintiffs joined a single suit, he required a separate suit from each.

His process turned tens of thousands of suits into more than three million suits.

Defendants askedRobreno to dismiss about half the claims with a stroke of a pen, butRobreno preferred a thorough approach.

He asked defendants for "show cause" motions to get rid of claims one by one, and he set weekly hearings for hundreds at a time.

He enlisted a platoon of magistrates to preside over settlement conferences, and he started rounding up mediators.

On May 4 he appointed a mediator for 2,800 plaintiffs fromIndiana,Wisconsin andIllinois, including more than 100 from the Southern District of Illinois.

On May 7 he focused on 22 Gavin plaintiffs and five clients ofSt. Louis lawyer Patrick O'Brien in the Southern District.

They all sued Illinois Central as their former employer.

Among those who listed home towns, not one lived inSouthern Illinois.

Two O'Brien clients came from Heyworth and the others came fromDecatur,Champaign and Tuscola, all in the Central District.

An O'Brien complaint lists a litany of more than 20 ways to cough, plus a lament of constant medical care.

The same words appear in each complaint.

Gavin sued on behalf of three and four men at a time, claiming common issues regardless of occupation, location or duration.

In one case he asserted common questions for acarman who started work in 1950, a laborer who started in 1953, an electrician who started in 1974, and an electrician who started in another city in 1972.

All four lived inAlabama.

In another suit Gavin asserted common questions for two engineers and twocarmen whose jobs began from 1934 to 1971.

The complaint didn't say where the plaintiffs lived.

Another suit showed twoMississippi plaintiffs, one fromAlabama, and one fromCoconino County,Ill.

Illinois lacks aCoconinoCounty, though it could use one. The realCoconinoCounty, inArizona, features theGrand Canyon.

Gavin didn't specify damages for any client but Ellington.

None of the cases remained in the Southern District for long.

Defendants asked the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multi District Litigation to transfer them toPhiladelphia, and the panel granted transfers.

This February, defendants filed show cause motions asserting that plaintiffs didn't state specific claims asRobreno required.

O'Brien responded that he didn't receive notices to comply withRobreno's order and didn't know about it until defendants posted the motions at the Southern District.

Terry Brown ofBelleville entered an appearance as his co-counsel.

Gavin didn't respond as smoothly as O'Brien.

On April 24 the court received responses on behalf of Gavin's clients, arguing that they met the requirements of the order in 2007.

The responses bore the signature of Hector Sandoval, ofRoven-Kaplan inHouston.

On April 27 clerks declared the responses deficient because they didn't come through Sandoval's password.

The Gavin and O'Brienplaintiffs suits started from 2004 to 2007.

On May 11 a new case fromSouthern Illinois bubbled up onRobreno's front burner.

The Multi District Panel sent him a wrongful death suit that MichaelCascino ofChicago filed in January on behalf of the late EdwardShotts.

According to the complaintShotts died in 2005, at age 76.

Cascino didn't give his residence, but a work history placed him inIndiana.

Prior to transfer, defendants Owens-Illinois and Guard Line Inc. argued that a two year limit had run out on wrongful death.

Airgas Merchant Gases echoed the argument and added that the complaint was devoid of facts.

Diseases

From all five O'Brien complaints: Plaintiff has developed or is at risk to develop one or more of the following diseases: asbestosis, lung cancer,mesothelioma, asbestos related pleural disease, mixed dust, pneumoconiosis, occupational asthma, bronchitis, obstructive lung disease, chronic obstructive lung disease, silicosis, shortness of breath, reduced lung function, chronic persistent cough, chest congestion, sleep interruption, aggravation of pre-existing and co-existing disease, throat cancer, laryngeal cancer, lymphoma, gastrointestinal cancer, colon, stomach and rectal cancer, other asbestos related cancers, other diesel fume and exhaust related cancers, and other cancers associated with toxic exposure to solvents, chemicals, industrial products or chemicals, dusts, and/or particles.

The complaints also state that plaintiff has been under constant medical care and attention and will continue to receive same.

Pennsylvania – Asbestos Company – $200 Million Mesothelioma Verdict

 

Jury awards woman $200 million in asbestos case

April 30, 2010 | KPCC Wire Services | KPCC

Ajury awarded a woman more than $200 million after it found that her rare form of cancer was caused by exposure to asbestos from washing her husband's contaminated work-clothes.

A Superior Court jury found this week that Rhoda Evans'mesothelioma was caused by exposure to asbestos dust from CertainTeed asbestos cement water pipes, said attorney Larry Gornick of Levin Simes Kaiser & Gornick LLP, which represented the Evans family.

In addition to $8.8 million in compensatory damages to be paid by DWP and CertainTeed, the jury agreed late Thursday to also levy $200 million in punitive damages against CertainTeed, the attorney said.

Calls for comment to representatives of CertainTeed and DWP were not immediately returned.

The next step in the lawsuit before Superior Court Judge Conrad R. Aragon is a series of motions to be filed by both sides, Gornick said.

Aragon will decide on any award amount to be paid, which is expected to be reduced, Levin said.

"It is our hope that the damages awarded will relieve some of Rhoda's suffering, as well as the burden of her medical expenses so that her life will be prolonged and she can continue to care and provide for her young granddaughter,'' Levin said, adding that the 7-year-old girl was orphaned a few

years ago when Rhoda's own daughter died of complications from juvenile onset diabetes.

"We also hope that the punitive damage award will serve to make the community safer by making product manufacturers think twice before concealing dangerous characteristics of their products.'' he said.

The case stems from Bobby Evans' employment with DWP from 1974 to 1998.

As part of his job, Gornick said, Evans was routinely exposed to asbestos while working with pipes manufactured by CertainTeed, aValley Forge,Pennsylvania.-based manufacturer of building materials.

Gornick said the jury found CertainTeed had knowledge that asbestos caused cancer in the early 1960s. However, the company continued to manufacture the asbestos pipes and did not place a cancer warning on them until 1985, the lawyer said.

"CertainTeed was fully aware that its products contained cancer-causing asbestos, but chose not to warn about the risk for decades, said another plaintiff attorney, William Levin.

The jury found CertainTeed liable for punitive damages, for pain and suffering, and for loss of future earnings and medical expenses, Gornick said.

After Evans retired from the DWP, the couple, who are now in their late 60s, relocated toNorth Carolina.

Pennsylvania – Asbestos Mesothelioma Lawsuit

Asbestos Lawsuit Goes to Trial

Products caused cancer, suit claims

Apr 14, 2004 |Indiana Gazette

 

A product-liability lawsuit filed by a dying retiree of the Fisher Scientific Co. almost four years ago has made its way to trial this week in the Indiana County Court.

The suit filed by Joseph Carl Smith of Homer City RD 3 has been consolidated with claims that two other retired Fisher Scientific workers, Stanley Maschak of Shelocta RD 3 and John Lee Harris ofIndiana, who also contracted cancer from exposure to asbestos in Fisher Scientific's plant alongIndian Springs Road inWhiteTownship.

Smith and his wife, Concetta, filed suit in July 2000, about three months after Smith had beendiagnosed with mesothelioma, an incurable cancer of the lining of the lungs. Smith, 69, died in February 2001.

Joan Maschak filed a series of three lawsuits in 2000 and 2001, following her husband's death at age 69 from mesothelioma in November 1999.

Harris, 68, initiated his case in November 2000, less than three months after surgeons removed most of his right lung to prevent the spread of lung cancer. An attorney said Tuesday that Harris is in remission.

About 60 companies were named as defendants in each of the suits, but lawyers representing only two of them are putting up a defense against the claims in the trial this week.

The suits accused the companies of manufacturing or supplying asbestos-containing products that Smith, Maschak and Harris used in the assembly of medical and laboratory equipment in the Fisher plant. Fisher Scientific was not named as a defendant becausePennsylvania law prohibits workers from suing their employers.

On Monday, at least eight attorneys were at the defense table in Judge Gregory Olson's courtroom, helping to select the jury. When the trial opened Tuesday morning, only three lawyers remained to defend Pittsburgh-area industrial suppliers, Taylored Industries Inc. of Harmarville and Pittsburgh Gage and Supply Co., which now is owned by IU North America Inc.

Many of the claims against the other defendant companies had been dismissed "with prejudice" or "without prejudice" and, in some cases, the court had granted motions for summary judgment against them, according to court records. But attorneys on both sides declined to discuss whether the other companies had reached settlements with the plaintiffs.

In his opening statement Tuesday, an attorney representing Harris and Concetta Smith, told the jury that although Taylored Industries and Pittsburgh Gage simply furnished asbestos-containing products that were made by other companies, they were just as responsible as the manufacturers to provide sufficient warning of the dangers of asbestos to the Fisher Scientific Co. workers who used the products.

Theattorney who represents Joan Maschak, said the men assembled ovens, furnaces, fume hoods and hot plates using insulating panels shipped to Fisher by Taylored Industries and were sickened by breathing microscopic fibers of asbestos from the panels. Beachler also said the men worked in the vicinity of pipes covered with asbestos-containing insulation furnished by Pittsburgh Gage.

Pennsylvania - $12 Million Verdict Mesothelioma Death

Family of mill worker who died from asbestos exposure awarded $2 million

ByBobbyKerlik
PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Wednesday, February 3, 2010

AnAlleghenyCounty jury awarded the family of aPlum man who died from asbestos exposure $2 million.

The jury returned a $50 million verdict last week in favor of the BarryBaumener estate and against 25 companies named as defendants after a two-week trial. All of the companies except one —Oglebay Norton Co. of Ohio and its division, Ferro Engineering — settled out of court,Baumener's attorney, John Kane, said.

Ferro will have to pay $2 million because the jury ordered each of the 25 defendants to pay 4 percent of the total. The 24 companies who settled out of court are immune to the jury's verdict.

Attorneys for Ferro could not be reached for comment.

Baumener was diagnosed withmesothelioma, a cancer of the lining of the lungs, in April and died in October. He was 62, Kane said.

Baumener worked for Carpenter Technology, asteel mill inReading. He sued several companies in May, including Ferro, alleging that the company sold asbestos-containing products to the mill where he worked.

Baumener and his wife, Marsha, moved from theirReading home into his daughter'sPlum home after his diagnosis.

"I think the jury understood the severity of the injury and the devastation on the entire family," Kane said.

Kane declined to say how much the family settled for in the other cases but said it was far less than $50 million.

Pennsylvania -Mesothelioma Death

Philadelphia Asbestos Verdict - $25.2 million

The Legal Intelligencer – March 20, 2008

The Legal Intelligencer reports that after a reverse-bifurcated trial, aPhiladelphia jury awarded $25.2 million in compensatory and punitive damages to compensate for malignant mesothelioma deaths. Plaintiffs in the three cases requestedKentucky law; two settled after the compensatory damage phase. According to plaintiffs’ attorneys,Kentucky law ultimately permitted the jury to award higher punitive damages than it could underPennsylvania law. Here’s an excerpt:

His case,Baccus v. Crane Co., was brought against the Crane Co., John Crane and Yarway, a company. The defendants sought to haveKentucky law apply to the jury's findings inBaccus and the judge agreed. The jury had previously awarded $7 million in compensatory damages to Baccus and apportioned liability in the amount of 45 percent against John Crane, 35 percent against Crane Co. and 20 percent against Yarway, Shein said.

The jury, applyingKentucky law, also found Yarway and Crane Co. "grossly negligent for failure to warn of the dangers of asbestos in reckless disregard of the safety of others," Shein said. The jurors assessed $11.9 million in punitive damages against Crane Co. and $6.3 million against Yarway.

Shein said this is the first case inPhiladelphia he has seen in more than 20 years in which a jury awarded punitive damages in an asbestos case. He said the standard for applying such damages in an asbestos case inPennsylvania is "much, much higher." He saidPennsylvania usually defers the finding of punitive damages until later in the case whereasKentucky law instructs the court to do it sooner.

The defendants, Shein said, wanted to apply Kentucky law because it uses an apportioned liability standard in which each of the defendants, even those who previously settled, are given an individual portion of liability. ThePennsylvania model is more akin to "in for a penny, in for a pound," Shein said, in which each defendant splits the damages equally.

"The thing kind of backfired on them because the jury held all of the settled defendants zero-percent responsible," he said.

The defendants that settled before the compensatory damages phase of the trial were Ingersoll Rand, THAN, IMO/DeLaval, Westinghouse, OwensIllinois and Goulds Pumps.

Montour considers closing high school during construction

Thursday, January 28, 2010

By Brian David,Pittsburgh Post-Gazette -Pennsylvania

Two and a half years into a stalled renovation project, theMontourSchool District is looking into closing its high school complex for the 2010-11 year to cut construction time in half.

"The idea is that we would displace students for one academic year instead of building around them for two years," Acting Superintendent Donald Boyer said Wednesday.

Dr. Boyer said he met with the high school staff Monday to outline the administration's thought processes, and that outsized rumors have been percolating through the district.

The Montour board is scheduled to act on renovation-related construction documents at its meeting at 7 p.m. today in the large group instruction room in theDavidE.WilliamsMiddle School onPorters Hollow Road in Kennedy.

Dr. Boyer said the possible relocation plan is not on the agenda.

"It's two months too early," he said. Given the rumors, though, he said he will likely address the topic.

Among the rumors circulating this week in e-mails and via telephone throughout the district:

• Construction bids came in high. Dr. Boyer said it's not true. Bids won't even go out until Feb. 10 at the earliest, and will be due back in March.

• Sports will be canceled. The gymnasium, pool and stadium complex would remain open and athletics would go on, with perhaps some adjustments in the use of practice fields.

• Classes will be held in the vacant Giant Eagle store on Steubenville Pike. "For one thing, I don't even know where this Giant Eagle is," said Dr. Boyer, a resident of theHarrisburg area who is filling the Montour job on a temporary basis. "For another, it wouldn't have enough toilets. Any space we use has to meet the standards for use as a school."

He said the administration has looked at about nine different possibilities for housing students and is still seeking more ideas. If the plan moves forward -- and Dr. Boyer stressed that it has not yet been approved -- the administration would offer four or five possibilities to the board in March.

Among the drawbacks to such a plan is that students might need to be split up -- few buildings would be able to take on the whole school. But Dr. Boyer said asbestos has been found in five new places in the existing schools, which would compound the problems that would already come in doing the renovation as classes carried on.

Those include moving classrooms multiple times, potential power outages, a lack of parking, conflicts between school and construction vehicles and potential dangers to students from construction materials.

"The two main concerns of the board and administration are first, the health and welfare of our students and staff, and second, maintaining our educational program with continuity and completeness," Dr. Boyer said.

Montour closed off its auditorium and science labs in 2007 to begin demolition for the renovation project, but never started construction after bids came in high in early 2008.

The board replaced its architect and construction team in December 2008 and unveiled new plans in 2009.

EPA Adds FormerPennsylvania Asbestos Dump To National Cleanup List


April 16, 2009 8:25 a.m. EST

David Goodhue - AHN Reporter

Washington,DC (AHN) - The Environmental Protection Agency recently added an Ambler,Pa. facility that served as a dump for asbestos-containing materials to its Superfund National Priority list.

The Superfund list includes more than 1,500 sites where the EPA determined cleanup is necessary for the good of the public health.

"The site is on the NPL because the nearby residential population could potentially be exposed to airborne asbestos and to asbestos contamination along Tannery Run, Rose Valley Creek and the Wissahickon Creek," the EPA said in a press release.

According to the EPA, the asbestos pile at the BoRit dump inPennsylvania covers almost two acres of land and is about 20 feet above ground level. A nearby creek is a popular local fishing spot, Asbestos.com reported.

Exposure to asbestos can cause serious illness, including a type of lung cancer know as mesothelioma. People with mesothelioma can go up to 10 years without being properly diagnosed, and the survival rate for sufferers ins usually less than a year after diagnosis, according to Asbestos.com.

The BoRit site was used as an asbestos dump from the early 1900s to the 1980s, according to the EPA. The site is divided into three parcels: the asbestos waste pile, a reservoir owned by the Wissahickon Waterfowl Preserve and a former playground owned by theWhitpainTownship.

The playground area was closed and fenced off in the 1980s.

Rare lung cancer is leaving sorrowful legacy among working class

Mesothelioma, caused by asbestos, may one day strike rescuers and survivors ofWorldTradeCenter attacks

Tuesday, January 21, 2003 –PittsburghPA

By Marylynne Pitz, Post-Gazette Staff Writer

For more than 40 years, people who contracted a deadly form of cancer caused by inhaling asbestos fibers had no hope of survival.

Still, Nancy Buszinski and Alice Steigerwald, both of the Pittsburgh area, remained hopeful as they tried everything to save their second husbands whose love had given them another chance for lifelong companionship.

As the women grieved, they forged a friendship and joined a growing movement among doctors, lawyers, survivors and scientists to find a cure for mesothelioma, the disease that claimed their husbands.

The rare cancer has slowly suffocated at least 90,000 Americans who worked in steel mills, shipyards, power plants and construction. Now, the children of those workers, who washed their parents' dusty clothes or sat in their laps when they arrived home from work, are dying, too.

Often mistaken for pneumonia initially, this cancer of the lining of the lungs is difficult to diagnose. By the time it is detected, few patients live longer than a year. It is rare enough that few doctors have diagnosed or treated it.

Now, the 4,000 people diagnosed each year with mesothelioma have some hope of living a bit longer.

A new drug called Alimta, made by Eli Lilly, is being tested in a clinical trial led by Dr. Nicholas J. Vogelzang at theUniversity ofChicago. The drug works by attacking folic acid, a vitamin that is essential for dividing cancer cells.

Tony Buszinski also went from the appearance of health in a photograph with his wife, Nancy, in February 1998 to a wasted frame of a man in July 1999. He died the next month.

In that trial, which has tracked 448 patients in more than 30 countries, Alimta caused tumors to shrink in 46 percent of participants. Patients who took the drug with chemotherapy, lived longer and had less pain than those who took only an older drug.

Alimta is on a fast track for Food and Drug Administration approval and is available on a compassionate-use basis.

"We're pretty excited about that," said Dr. Harvey Pass, a thoracic surgical oncologist with the Karmanos Cancer Institute atWayneStateUniversity inDetroit. "We don't know whether that's going to hit a home run, and it probably will not. We need everything we can get with this disease and we'll take a couple of singles."

Finding a cure takes on a new urgency in the wake of the destruction of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, which exposed thousands of people to asbestos dust.

Inhaling just one asbestos fiber can trigger the development of the lung cancer in some people, a process that may take 30 years. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency agrees there is no safe minimum level of exposure and in the 1970s imposed strict regulations on its use and removal.

"We often say that mesothelioma takesAmerica's heroes. All the men who served in the military. All the men who got up early and went to work every day to work in factories, building the country. All the wives who gave them a hug and washed their clothes," said Christopher Hahn, executive director of the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation inSanta Barbara,Calif.

Rich Steigerwald's driver's license photographs from 1996 and 2000 show the dramatic change in his appearance as mesothelioma consumed his lungs.

"That statement becomes that much more poignant now that you're talking about rescue workers who rushed to the scene [of theWorldTradeCenter]. People, through their heroism, wind up increasing their risk for mesothelioma."

Tony and Rich

Tony Buszinski, 49, never smoked. He traced his cancer to the 15 years he spent working on pipes, boilers and furnaces as a maintenance welder at a large steel mill inHomestead.

Asbestos, once considered an excellent fireproofer and insulator, has been used in manufacturing since the late 19th century and is in the walls and ceiling tiles of older buildings. But its tiny hook-ended fibers break free whenever asbestos is disturbed and can be inhaled into the lungs.

After Buszinski was diagnosed in February 1998, his wife scoured the Internet searching for a doctor with expertise. There were also battles with health insurance companies reluctant to pay for consultations with them.

"When you went on the Internet, all you saw was gloom and doom," said Nancy, who lives in Carnegie.

She searched for a support group at the American Cancer Society's local chapter, but there weren't enough people to form one.

She watched helplessly as Tony withered away. He died on Aug. 3, 1999.

Rich Steigerwald, 60, a computer technician who lived inBrightonHeights, had worked as an apprentice for three years with Steamfitters Local 449 when he was young. He never smoked and could not pinpoint how or where he was exposed.

Was it the vermiculite his mother used in her garden? The brake linings he worked with doing car repairs? He could have inhaled asbestos while doing home remodeling jobs, installing telephone lines inPittsburgh public schools or working as a pipe fitter at aHomestead steel mill.

Ten years after he marriedAlice in November 1988, he became short of breath on his regular walks fromDavis Avenue toRiverviewPark.

"He was tired. When he sang at church, he couldn't seem to sing," Alice Steigerwald recalled.

After he was diagnosed on Sept. 10, 1999, he sought treatment in a clinical trial at the National Institutes of Health. Alice Steigerwald stayed with her family inBethesda,Md.

"We called it a mission of hope. You don't want any 'what ifs,' " she said.

But he eventually was admitted to Forbes Hospice. During six hours on Sept. 7, 2001, Rich Steigerwald's breathing became more and more labored. As he died,Alice held his hand to her heart.

"You can't even hold them because they're in so much pain. Your life is never the same again."

Finding a cure

While it's too late to save their husbands, Nancy Buszinski and Alice Steigerwald are determined to help find a cure and have worked to raise money toward that cause.

Buszinski also serves on the family advocacy board of the nonprofit Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation, which was founded in 1999. It has awarded more than $600,000 in grants to scientists working toward a cure.

 

 

 

More info

Alimta, the drug being tested to treat mesothelioma, is available for compassionate use. Patients who wish to obtain it can ask their doctors to call 1-866-347-9503.

A clinical trial to study the effectiveness of a gene therapy treatment for mesothelioma awaits approval.

 

 

For years, no research was done on mesothelioma.

"It's a blue-collar disease," Buszinski said, characterizing the attitude of corporations that knew about the dangers of asbestos as "We can sacrifice a few lives for the money."

A day after Alice Steigerwald buried her husband, terrorists rammed two planes into theWorldTradeCenter inNew York City, killing more than 2,800 people and blasting tons of asbestos fibers into the air.

Hahn, the executive director of the mesothelioma foundation, said occupational physicians inNew York are already treating people who were exposed to asbestos during the trade center's destruction and the site clean-up.

"It is well-known that there was a lot of asbestos in the twoWorldTradeCenter buildings. They think that there might have been as much as 10 tons released by the explosion of the buildings," he said.

"What you worry about with asbestos is that when it's disturbed and when it's shattered, that releases the small fibers, which are the most dangerous. We're talking about an incredible impact on theWorldTradeCenter, pulverizing that dust into tiny sizes, which makes it that much more dangerous."

Many experts, Hahn said, believe the incidence of mesothelioma will rise among the people who were exposed at Ground Zero.

"Thirty years from now, when some of them develop mesothelioma, it will be a crime if the treatments we have to offer them then are as inadequate as the ones we have today," Hahn said.
