Mesothelioma Hope

U.S. Navy veterans have a higher risk of developing mesothelioma than those who served in any other military branch. Every 1 in 3 mesothelioma cases stems from U.S. Navy or shipyard asbestos exposure. Mesothelioma Hope strives to provide the most accurate and helpful guidance on mesothelioma symptoms, treatment options, and support resources. They are dedicated to getting veterans and their families the support they need!

The Mesothelioma Center

Countless veterans are currently suffering from life-threatening illnesses that are a result of exposure to asbestos, a material that was commonly used in hundreds of military applications, products, and ships because of its resistance to fire. Veterans who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma even qualify for special benefits from the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs. The Mesotheliomas Center is constantly working to support veterans who have been impacted by life-threatening illnesses resulting from asbestos exposure!

Mesothelioma.net

In the past, our Military relied on asbestos in various settings, including buildings, vehicles, aircraft, and ships due to its low cost, availability, fireproofing, and heat-resistant properties. Consequently, veterans have a higher incidence of mesothelioma, with nearly one-third of cases being diagnosed in this group. Late-stage diagnosis is common due to the rapid spread and delayed symptom development. Workers at Mesothelioma.net have had the wonderful honor and privilege of supporting members of the armed forces with cancer support for over 20 years. They also proudly sponsor The American Cancer Society, the MD Cancer Center, and the Make-a-Wish Foundation!

Lanier Law Firm

Asbestos, a mineral once deemed to be the "miracle mineral", due to its fire-resistant properties. The military relied heavily on asbestos for decades, using it in many of their products like in ships, aircraft, and barracks. Because of this, veterans are more likely than others to be affected by mesothelioma cancer, making up almost 1/3 of all cases.
