All proceeds from the sale of the digital book Understanding Mesothelioma will go to the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) to help ADAO advocate, educate and create a community for people affected by asbestos disease.
Mesothelioma is a rare cancer that is caused by asbestos and is diagnosed in about 3000 people per year in the United States. Because mesothelioma is so rare, diagnosis and treatment can be a great challenge to patients and their families. Understanding Mesothelioma offers patients and caregivers in-depth information about this unique cancer including causes, finding a specialist, treatments, legal issues and caregiving, as well as other information. The book also includes helpful medical resources. Understanding Mesothelioma will help patients navigate their treatment options and side effects, while reading survivor stories that both educate and inspire. Distribution of Understanding Mesothelioma has been made possible by the generous support of Baron & Budd, PC.
