My goal is to reach veterans and their families who have been affected by mesothelioma and connect them to our website which offers free veteran specific resources and support. 1/3 of all mesothelioma patients are veteran. Since 2004 over 5,000 veterans have died from mesothelioma. The reason this cancer targets so many veterans is because of the prevalence of asbestos use in the military in the past. A large part of our mission is to help spread awareness to veterans and their families.
