  • Surgery is the foundation of a successful multi-modal treatment plan. See the video above to better understand the typical progression of mesothelioma. The first question to ask: Is the tumor operable? Only an experienced thoracic surgeon can credibly answer that questions.

Your Patient Roadmap

Patients diagnosed with mesothelioma find themselves at the beginning of a journey. Because of the rarity of the disease and the developing nature of the treatments, it is a journey that will take them on sparsely-traveled, out of the way back-roads. The kind of roads that are often difficult to navigate. Difficult, that is, unless you have a good road map.

Fighting for Asbestos Cancer Patients and Funding Research Isn’t Just Our Job…It’s Personal
