FAQ

Mesothelioma and Cultural Icons

    Mesothelioma steals lives and causes pain, and in some cases robs society of cultural diversity in the form of icons. Warren Zevon, Malcom Mclaren, and Steve McQueen all suffered from mesothelioma in their lifetimes, and this article will briefly discuss them. First, it focuses on who they were, followed by the form of their mesothelioma, along with any affect their mesothelioma may have had on their life and art. Mesothelioma hurts people in all walks of life, and this article shows how different people make their own choices when faced with such a dangerous illness.

    Warren Zevon was an American musician who was struck with mesothelioma, dying in 2003. Zevon was a singer-songwriter who was perhaps best known for his song “Werewolves of London,” along with humorous lyricism. He suffered from pain and shortness of breath for a time, and was implored to see a doctor, who diagnosed him with inoperable mesothelioma. Like many cases, his had spread too far for a positive outcome with surgery. Mr. Zevon chose to forgo radiation or chemotherapy, for fear of harming his quality of life, and recorded an album “The Wind,” inspired by his symptoms before passing.

    Malcolm Mclaren was a British punk icon, artist, performer, producer and designer, and his death from Mesothelioma spread pain throughout the world of punk and music. Mclaren was well known for his work managing The Sex Pistols, but had a number of other projects, including fashion design and helping bring hip hop to the United Kingdom. Mclaren ran a fashion shop, and it’s widely believed that during a renovation, he was exposed to a significant amount of asbestos, which likely contributed to his development of mesothelioma. Mclaren was diagnosed in October of 2009, dying in April of the following year, 6 months after diagnosis.

    Steve Mcqueen was an American cultural icon and actor, who defined “cool,” in American pop-culture with a rebellious tough-guy image. Mcqueen was most famous for his acting in films, including the Great Escape and Magnificent Seven, along with his interest in racing and stunts. Mcqueen was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 1979, a year after developing a persistent cough. He publicly blamed the cancer on asbestos exposure, focusing mostly on his military experience, and some insulation necessary for his auto-racing and stunt work. Mcqueen died in 1980 when he chose to pursue dangerous surgery to remove a 5 pound tumor from his abdomen under a pseudonym in Mexico. Mcqueen showed true toughness and courage in bringing his condition to light before his death by speaking so publicly about it.

    Mcqueen, Mclaren and Zevon are all very different men, cultural treasures in their own light, and all three were taken by mesothelioma. With these 3 stories, it should be clear that there are different ways of facing this illness, none more or less valid. One will note the prevalence of asbestos exposure in two-thirds of these stories. These stories should show that mesothelioma is dangerous, and doesn’t spare the rich, famous or tough.
