Welcome to the Mesothelioma Group. We’re glad you’re here.
We’re a small team of healthcare professionals, patient advocates, and communication specialists who have one goal: to lead the way in supporting and encouraging mesothelioma patients and their families.
WE DO THIS THROUGH
High-quality and reliable information about mesothelioma, so you can understand the disease, find the best treatment, and learn about the latest research.
Personalized help finding a top doctor, filing VA claims, and connecting with other mesothelioma patients and families.
Guidance with the complicated process of finding out what compensation you’re qualified to receive—so you can get the best treatment possible.
WHY WE DO IT
Mesothelioma is a complicated disease, but one thing is very clear: Asbestos exposure is the primary cause.
Despite the known dangers of asbestos, companies continued to use it in building and manufacturing in the United States until just a few decades ago. Because they were making a considerable profit, many companies actively hid the risks from their employees and from the public.
Workers who spent years doing some of the most physically demanding jobs were exposed to cancer-causing asbestos. Former factory workers, miners, insulation manufacturers and installers, auto and construction workers, and ship builders were put at risk.
U.S. Armed Forces veterans—those who served our country in the Navy, Marines, Army, Air Force, or Coast Guard—account for 30 percent of all mesothelioma deaths in this country.
Our desire is to provide comprehensive, caring support for those who’ve been unjustly affected by this disease.
Everyone needs an advocate. We believe that giving you valuable resources and practical advice to use immediately is the most important way we can empower you.

OUR VALUES ARE WHAT SET US APART
Directness & Simplicity
We’re here to give guidance—and the best way to do that is to cut through the clutter. Mesothelioma is a complex disease, but choosing the best doctor, finding the right treatment, and getting the best possible care shouldn’t be.
Our research team is committed to producing top-notch medical material. We talk to patients, families, and mesothelioma specialists to ensure that you’re getting the most relevant, useful, and up-to-date information
We believe in raising awareness, not just educating patients and their loved ones. Much of our focus is on early detection for at-risk groups, which also generates more knowledge within the health community.
A mesothelioma diagnosis usually has a grim outlook, but we don’t think that’s the end of the story. We believe in the power of science to make advancements in treatment and in the power of people to actively manage their diagnoses and support each other.
