Mesothelioma is a severe type of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. While it’s use was particularly common during the 20th Century due the lack of understanding about the harmful effects of asbestos, it is now banned in nearly 60 countries.
Asbestos exposure can be avoided through eradication. The advocacy work of the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation is determined to make that happen.
The community of advocates led by the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation is comprised of patients, their loved ones, caregivers, doctors, researchers and nurses who work to educate government leaders about mesothelioma and increase funding for research and education.
“The Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation is committed to providing the best and most accurate information about mesothelioma to our community and lawmakers.”
