Helping bring you hope, faith, and financial help when navigating through mesothelioma

Learn about the unexpected environmental dangers of asbestos exposure.

Mesothelioma is a cancer caused by asbestos exposure. Since many older homes and buildings contain asbestos, exposure to contaminated air can put firefighters, first responders, contractors, even homeowners and kids at risk for cancer and other illnesses, and the environment at risk for being polluted for years. Further, about 30% of diagnosed cases of mesothelioma are in Veterans due to the former widespread use of asbestos in the military. Our website seeks to provide information and assistance to those who are in need of support. It includes veteran-specific assistance while also taking a deep dive into topics like treatment and emerging medicine, while thoroughly covering complementary medicine, counseling and occupational safety.
