The Norm Kulig 2Young2Go Foundation, founded by the siblings of Norm Kulig who lost his own battle with mesothelioma at age 42, has raised over $100,000 to support mesothelioma research. Among the Foundation’s goals are to shed light on the dangers of asbestos exposure, further research for better treatment options and to find a cure for this deadly disease. The Foundation also advocates for the prevention of asbestos-related diseases by focusing on the remediation of existing asbestos waste disposal sites throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania.
In 2011, the University of Pennsylvania Health System awarded its Mesothelioma Advocacy Award to the Norm Kulig 2Young2Go Foundation in recognition of its efforts in mesothelioma advocacy and research.
