An Update on Mesothelioma

Back in 2014, I  was invited by Heather Von St James to join a summer capaign in raising awareness regarding Mesothelioma: a type of cancer that in my opinion is not very much known although a lot of people has actually suffered such cancer. The post I wrote in July 2014 contained information about this type of cancer and how the campaign could help survivors and those affected by this illness.

Recently, I received an email from Virgil Anderson, who was diagnosed with Mesothelioma. When he learned that he had the cancer, he found immediate medical attention through Mesothelioma.net.

Thankfully, there are people dedicated and passionate enough to serve victims of Mesothelioma who are willing to assist and give peace of mind to them. Virgil recounted that even though he contacted them on a Sunday one of their patient advocates gave him a call back within minutes. They gave him a great deal of helpful information on doctors and resources available to him.

As a result of their website he is now being treated at the National Cancer Institute and the patient advocates have even provided him with financial assistance so he could afford a place to live during his cancer treatments. He further added that if he had not reached out to this website he would likely be homeless and more importantly in hospice waiting to die. These people gave him his only chance at survival.
