John S. Lyons Memorial Banquet

This year marked a milestone for the JOHNS who celebrated today’s Labor Leader of the Year at their 30th Annual Memorial Banquet. The event was held on September 8, 2012 in San Diego, CA and raised $5,000 for mesothelioma research! As you may recall the JOHNS meet every year to honor an old friend, John S. Lyons, by recognizing the Labor Leader of the Year, and to raise money for cancer and leukemia research with local charities. Since its inception the JOHNS have donated nearly $1,300,000.00 to local charities! The Mesothelioma Research Foundation of America is honored to be chosen as one of the benefactors of this year’s event and in years past.


Local 230 Pipetrades Business Manager, Kirk Crosswhite, and Retired Local 230 Business Manager, Nico Ferraro, shared a table with the Foundation’s Founding Board Member, Jerry Neil Paul, Executive Director, Elizabeth Paul, and Medical Director Dr., Parkash Gill. After thanking everyone in attendance Dr. Gill spoke about the development of new cancer fighting drugs that he and his team are working on at the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center. He highlighted the development and submission of EPH-B4 to FDA Phase I Clinical Trials as being a direct result of the donations received from events such as the JOHNS.

Everyone at the Foundation would like to thank the President of the JOHNS and this year’s Labor Leader of the Year Tom Lemmon as well as Art Cantu, Councilwoman Marti Emerald, Kirk Crosswhite, Nico Ferraro, Bill Stuckey, Art Lujan and the rest of the JOHNS for their commitment to making mesothelioma a disease of the past. THANK YOU!
