FAQ

Mesothelioma: Sufferers in the political sphere

    There may be a standard image of a mesothelioma sufferer; a man in his 50s or 60s, probably in the building trades, with rough hands and a cough that won’t stop. That image may be accurate for many, but mesothelioma can strike anyone. This article is looking at 3 political figures who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, who they are, where they’re from, what their mesotheliom looks like, and how it affected their political stances, if at all. Bernie Banton, Hamilton Jordan, and Heather Von St. James are all individuals who are politically active, and have been affected by mesothelioma. Their stories, and their illnesses are different.

    Bernie Banton, an Australian, was a fierce campaigner for social justice in Australia, and died from pleural mesothelioma. Bernie lived from 1947 to 2007, and became the face of a major campaign to bring compensation to sufferers of mesothelioma. Bernie had worked earlier in life on insulation, where he was exposed to asbestos which presumably led to his illness. As mentioned previously, Bernie suffered pleural mesothelioma, an illness that leads to tumors in the lining of the lungs, causing breathlessness, fluid buildup and pain. Bernie used politics to fight back against the illness that would claim his life.

    Hamilton Jordan, an American active in the political sphere, worked for the Carter administration, and as a cancer advocate before mesothelioma took his life in 2008. Hamilton is best known for his role as Jimmy Carter’s Chief of Staff from 1979-1980, a tumultuous time for the United States, and had worked with Carter since 1970. Hamilton had also been a long-time advocate for cancer research, along with his wife, an oncology nurse. Before he was diagnosed with mesothelioma, Hamilton had survived 2 other forms of cancer. He and his wife left a legacy of camps for children with cancer and diabetes.

    Heather Von St. James is another American mesothelioma sufferer, but her ending is different that the two men before her, due to aggressive and modern treatments. Heather today, is one of the foremost mesothelioma survivors advocates, which makes her a bit of an anomaly, because many mesothelioma patients are diagnosed with their cancer too late to make a full recovery. Heather believes her cancer came from asbestos tracked in from her father’s work, and led a public campaign to sue in the State of Minnesota.

    All three of these stories reflect courage in the face of the grim realities of mesothelioma. While 2 of these 3 stories ended in tragic early deaths, all three led to patients taking action to leave some sort of improvement in the world, even in the face of their cancer. With more research and advocacy, there’s a chance that society will end up with more success stories like Heather Von St. James, and fewer unnecessary and painful deaths.
