An estimated 3,000 people in the United States are diagnosed annually with malignant mesothelioma cancer.
When they need assistance, more than half of them contact The Mesothelioma Center at Asbestos.com, the nation’s most trusted mesothelioma resource.
Yes, our footprint is large. And with good reason. No one does it better.
As patients, loved ones, survivors, doctors and researchers observe Mesothelioma Awareness Day on Sept. 26, the services provided by The Mesothelioma Center continue to offer much-needed support, hope and guidance to aggressively combat this rare cancer.
“I don’t know if I would have made the best decisions without [The Mesothelioma Center],’’ said Janel, a patient diagnosed with mesothelioma in early 2021.
“I didn’t feel alone anymore on this journey. I got fast responses, educated guidance and still get ongoing encouragement.”
Founded in 2006, The Mesothelioma Center is dedicated to informing, assisting, connecting and advocating for patients and families, all free of charge.
It’s what we do. Everyone is welcome here.
“The Mesothelioma Center provided us with all the comprehensive information we needed to attend to my dad’s needs, to better understand this horrible disease,” said Deborah, the daughter of a mesothelioma patient.
“I can’t say enough about how helpful they were during our time of need.”
Advocates Connect Patients to the Best Care
Our Patient Advocates, who also participate in Mesothelioma Awareness Day events, work tirelessly to connect patients and families to the resources they need to navigate a difficult mesothelioma diagnosis.
With a variety of specialized backgrounds, they cover all bases, helping callers find answers to myriad questions.
Our Patient Advocates have enrolled almost 100 mesothelioma patients and caregivers in one of our virtual support groups, which meet regularly.
In the past year, Patient Advocates have connected more than 700 mesothelioma patients and family members to our on-staff doctor and nurses.
Their efforts help bring families considerable peace of mind, knowing the best possible care is within reach.
“The monthly online support group is very important to me. It’s helpful to hear directly from other patients openly sharing information,” said Richard, a mesothelioma survivor.
“If you are a patient or a caregiver, go to the website and get involved with the support group.”
