We’ve added a new website link to our list that is a wonderful resource for those dealing with Mesothelioma. As some of you may already know, we are currently filming a documentary on a group of renowned researchers that are spending their lives trying to find the cause and hopefully the cure for this deadly disease. This particular site deals primarily with Pleural mesothelioma, which is a rare cancer that is generally caused by asbestos exposure. The cancer develops in the mesothelium, which is the thin layer of tissue that lines and protects the chest cavity and other organs as well. While other types of mesothelioma may result from asbestos exposure, pleural mesothelioma is the most common, making up approximately 75 percent of all mesothelioma cases. Although mesothelioma is considered to be a rare cancer, between 2,000 and 3,000 people are diagnosed in the United Stated each year. The average life expectancy for a mesothelioma patient ranges between four and 18 months and understanding the signs of pleural mesothelioma development can make the difference in receiving an early diagnosis and a better prognosis
Their site is dedicated to compiling the latest and most up-to-date information on pleural mesothelioma and offers a number of resources to those coping with the pulmonary cancer. From treatment options to top doctors and the best cancer centers in the United States, PleuralMesothelioma.com is a one-stop resource for patients and their families.
Check out this site and some of our other wonderful connections at the Mission Possible Films website.
All the Best,
