Mesothelioma Information

Mesothelioma Information

Recently, I was contacted by the community outreach coordinator for the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance and asked if I could share some information on this rare form of cancer. Honestly, I didn’t know much about Mesothelioma until I read the fact sheet above and started looking at some sites online. What struck me is the fact that this disease is tied directly and most singularly to asbestos exposure, yet asbestos can still be found in homes, workplaces and even schools. I also learned that, despite the decline in the current day use of asbestos, the rate of Mesothelioma occurrence remains steady. The reason? It can take between 20 – 50 years after exposure to asbestos for symptoms to occur. Please take a moment to read the fact sheet and visit sites like the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance to become more educated on this rare and preventable form of cancer.
