The Mesothelioma Group:
The Mesothelioma Group, is a new organization dedicated to increasing mesothelioma awareness. As you may already know, mesothelioma is a rare but very deadly cancer caused by asbestos exposure. Veterans are especially at risk of developing mesothelioma because asbestos was almost unavoidable in every branch of the military. Once diagnosed, the average life expectancy is only about one year. This is why early detection and awareness for mesothelioma are so crucial in improving survival rates. We believe that any individual diagnosed with mesothelioma deserves to have the best information and support available.
The Mesothelioma Fund:
Asbestos exposure, a known cause of mesothelioma, was unavoidable for millions of veterans, whether they were deployed overseas or working in the U.S. Up to 30 percent of all diagnosed mesothelioma cases are veterans. Our mission is to help educate all veterans on the dangers of asbestos exposure and to also help provide service members suffering from mesothelioma the most up-to-date and accurate information on treatments, clinical trials and other patient resources. Our goal is to partner with organizations like yours to spread awareness about the dangers of asbestos exposure.
