Helpful Links for Veterans
The Mesothelioma Veterans Group
A charitable organization supporting VFW and the American Legion.
The reason this cancer targets so many Veterans is because of the extensive amount
of asbestos used in past military equipment.
Our organization provides free Veteran-specific resources and support
for patients and their loved ones.
Our goal at the Mesothelioma Group is to increase recognition, improving survival rates and life expectancy.
Asbestos exposure and mesothelioma are a growing concern for Veterans and their families.
Our group provides up-to-date, free, information and support, specifically focused on helping Veterans.
We've compiled a website absolutely full of information
on asbestos, mesothelioma cancer, treatment options and much more.
And recently created videos for our visitors as well!
What sets us apart from all other mesothelioma websites, is our motive.....
the fact that we are volunteers....
and in no way shape or form -
affiliated with any law firm or attorney.
This disease is 100% disabling because there is no cure.
We want to raise enough awareness in hopes to find a cure
while simultaneously be the outlet for all who are suffering
by offering all the information and guidance they could possibly need...
minus the making of money reason.
Mesothelioma Veteran's Center
Our goal is to reach veterans and their families,BR> who have been affected by mesothelioma,
and connect them to our website
which offers FREE veteran specific resources and support.
1/3 of all mesothelioma patients are veterans.
Since 2004, over 5,000 veterans
have died from mesothelioma.
The reason this cancer targets so many veterans
is because of the prevalence of asbestos use
in the military in the past.
A large part of our mission
is to help spread awareness to veterans and their families.
