Could you or someone you love be at risk? Learn about this deadly cancer, including the causes and treatment options.

Originating in the lining of the lungs, heart, or abdomen, malignant mesothelioma is known only to be caused by exposure to asbestos. This deadly material has been used in a variety of industries and has put many workers at risk for developing the disease 20 — 30 years later. Sadly, our nation’s veterans are among the population most at risk due to possible exposure during service.

Asbestos is still not banned in many countries, and is continuing to make people sick. As awareness of this problem grows, so does hope for all mesothelioma patients.
