MESOTHELIOMA-ASSISTANCE AND SUPPORT

 

As you may be aware, mesothelioma is a deadly form of cancer caused  from asbestos exposure. Due to the long latency period of mesothelioma, 


approximately 20-50 years, about 80% of those who are diagnosed with this terrible disease are seniors. Our organization works 1-on-1 with these individuals to help them find local doctors, treatment centers and support groups.  


Take a look at the website mesotheliomaprognosis.com/doctors/ to find out more information.

For over 20 years we’ve been helping families like yours connect with leading mesothelioma lawyers. There are many law firms that handle mesothelioma and asbestos cases. Choosing the right law firm for your family can be overwhelming. We clear through the confusion and help you connect with only the top lawyers nearest to you.




mesolawsuitafterdeath.com


We cover tough subjects including the end of life stages of mesothelioma, claims and compensation options, veterans cancer assistance, and many other prominent issues regarding Mesothelioma, its' victims, and suffering families.

Most families and spouses never know there are trust funds set up specifically for them on behalf of the large corporations responsible for this exposure. The fact is that the companies that manufactured the Boilers and other Military equipment and engine knew that they were made containing asbestos and caused cancer but still sold them to the military and exposed the people who are in charge of protecting our country  to fatal asbestos exposure (heroes).
