Roger G. Worthington, P.C. – Longtime Supporter Of The Pacific Meso Center – Donates $100,000 For Mesothelioma Research

I am pleased to continue my support of the the "Punch" Worthington Laboratory (PWR Lab) at the David Geffen School of Medicine in honor of my father, David "Punch" Worthington, Ph.D. with a contribution of $100,000.

The PWR Lab is the home of exciting new research on novel strategies for the treatment of mesothelioma and other occupational cancers.

In 2005, I was proud to help launch this vital research effort in honor of Punch who was diagnosed with asbestosis and lung cancer. Punch obtained a Ph.D. in Genetics but left a promising career in academia to pursue his true love: labor union organizing and advocacy. His memory lives on through the efforts of Dr. Robert Cameron and his staff.  Thank you Dr. Cameron!
