About Us

The Mesothelioma + Asbestos Awareness Center is dedicated to bringing attention to the dangers of asbestos and the deadly form of cancer it causes: mesothelioma. Our site serves as a repository of information for mesothelioma patients and their families, caregivers, advocates, and others who are looking to learn more about the disease. We also link individuals who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma to experts who can help them with issues such as medical, financial, or legal problems due to their mesothelioma diagnosis.

Mission

Mesothelioma is a rare cancer that affects about 3,000 people each year according to The American Cancer Society. With this in mind, the Mesothelioma + Asbestos Awareness Center aims to provide information to patients and loved ones affected by this terrible and deadly disease by sharing the latest news on medical research, spreading awareness on how to prevent asbestos exposure, and connecting them with our supportive online mesothelioma community.
