Man Diagnosed with Mesothelioma Plans to Beat the Odds

A 52 year old Arkansas man, Norman Kidder, has been diagnosed with mesothelioma. Doctors have toldĀ  him not to expect to live past his 54th birthday. Mr. Kidder, however, is planning on beating the odds and living past his 54th birthday.

Mr. Kidder developed mesothelioma after working with roofing materials for numerous years. Roofing materials are known to contain asbestos. Due to the nature of putting roofs on houses and other buildings, the dust easily gets into the air and, subsequently, the lungs. When asbestos gets into the lungs, it can become trapped in the lining of the lungs. When this happens, the deadly cancer mesothelioma can develop.

Concerns over the safety of asbestos are known to have existed since before 1900. The British Chief Inspector of Factories reported as early as 1898 that there were health risks associated with using asbestos. OSHA says that the fiber is now strictly regulated. An estimated 1.3 million people in the United States are exposed to asbestos fibers on a yearly basis.

Mr. Fidder himself recalls reading on roofing material packages that certain products contained asbestos. This was when he was 12 years old. He does not recall any other roof workers with whom he worked being diagnosed with mesothelioma though.
