– Resources to Empower Asbestos Victims

In In The News by Barbara Jacoby is a website put together by professionals in medicine, law, marketing, with the input of people who have had personal experiences with the type of cancer called mesothelioma. This aggressive type of cancer is associated with asbestos exposure and thousands of people have fallen victim to it over decades. We provide resources, access to legal help, information, and access to asbestos trust funds for those who are struggling with this disease while also sponsoring groups like the American Cancer Society and MD Anderson Cancer Center.

Mesothelioma and Asbestos
Mesothelioma is a rare type of cancer. It attacks the mesothelioma, which is the thin double layer of tissue that surrounds many of the body’s organs. The most common form affects the pleura around the lungs and chest cavity. The most common cause of mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos, and most people impacted by it were exposed at work.

Asbestos is now more regulated but at one time workers could be inhaling the tiny fibers of this mineral without knowing it and without realizing how they were being put in danger. Workers in construction and shipping, U.S. Navy veterans, and industrial workers of all types are among the most likely to have been exposed. Mesothelioma is rare, but it is also most often deadly. It is aggressive and spreads quickly.

Providing Information at
We found that there was a need for more information to empower the victims of asbestos exposure, who through no fault of their own, ended up with this terrible disease. We wanted to provide a one-stop resource online for accurate, well-researched, and updated information about everything related to mesothelioma and asbestos. The information provided ranges from treatment options to mesothelioma experts, and legal cases involving asbestos exposure. We believe that victims of asbestos are more empowered with knowledge.

Access to Legal and Financial Resources
We also provide people with mesothelioma, asbestos victims, and their loved ones with resources to help them find the legal and financial assistance they need. Living with a rare cancer like this is expensive. As medical bills pile up, most people need help. There are millions of dollars sitting in trust funds right now that were set aside for people exposed to asbestos on the job. We just want to make sure that victims have the information they need to find those resources and to access them if they qualify.

For anyone impacted by asbestos and mesothelioma, our site provides endless amounts of information and resources. We have a more detailed and sourced information than most other sites on this topic so you only need to make one stop to find the answers to all your important questions.
