Well-Known Mesothelioma Deaths

For many people, mesothelioma is a faceless disease that affects mostly people with an industrial background. While people who worked in mills, mines, and factories are indeed at a higher risk to be diagnosed and to ultimately pass away due to asbestos exposure, the myth that only industrial workers contract mesothelioma is an egregious one. Many well-known people from a wide variety of backgrounds have passed away because of mesothelioma.

Famous Mesothelioma Victims

Mesothelioma has affected people from all backgrounds and walks of life. Some of the famous people who passed away as a result of asbestos exposure include:

  • Steve McQueen. The famous actor likely contracted mesothelioma during his racing career, when he wore asbestos-lined race uniforms. He died in 1980, at the age of 50.
  • Warren Zevon. The rock-and-roll legend was diagnosed in 2002, and spent the last year of his life writing and recording his swansong.
  • Merlin Olsen. The Pro Football Hall-of-Famer was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 2009 and passed away in 2010.
  • Malcolm McLaren. The punk-rock impresario was diagnosed with mesothelioma in October of 2009 and died at a Swiss clinic in April of 2010, highlighting how difficult the disease is to diagnose in time.

Mesothelioma can affect anyone, regardless of profession. Asbestos was popular as a building material for generations, and its widespread use may have put millions of people at risk of exposure.
