Mesothelioma Guide

* As part of a Community Outreach team, the below link is provided for access to the Mesothelioma Guide.

* Veterans comprise 1/3 of all mesothelioma patients and approximately 6,000 veterans afflicted with this asbestos-caused cancer died between 1999 and 2005 alone.

* The reason this cancer targets so many veterans is because of the prevalence of asbestos use in the military in the past.

* Part of the mission of this organization is to spread awareness to veterans and their families; their website offers free veteran specific resources and support for patients and families.
