Support for Families wtih Mesothelioma

It is the exposure to asbestos, a substance used widely during and after World War II that is the primary cause for Mesothelioma.  No known level of exposure to asbestos is attributed to the disease.  Mesothelioma may be related to brief, low level or indirect exposures to asbestos.
One of the cruel aspects of the disease is that the effect is latent and symptoms virtually never show earlier than15 years after initial exposure. Symptoms peak at 30-40 years post exposure.

Families today are facing the effects of a disease they had no idea existed 30-40 years ago.  The Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance provides information and support for families dealing with this disease. Go to Mesothelioma.com to obtain details and find resources.
