“Knowledge is Hope” is the motto of the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation and it could not be more true.
While mesothelioma can be a terrifying diagnosis, researchers have made great strides in understanding the illness. With the myriad of things on your mind as a patient, you shouldn’t have to sift through resources trying to decipher which will provide you reliable information.
The Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation aims to give you the most up to date facts and figures about mesothelioma treatment.
They are a nonprofit dedicated to making the search for information easy. They provide quick links to help you access treatment details, clinical trials, financial resources, travel grants, and support groups. If you don’t already have a medical team, they’ll help you find one that fits your specific needs. No mesothelioma case is the same, and it’s important to find a specialist that understands your individualized case. In the meantime, you can ask the experts at the foundation any questions you have by submitting a simple form on their website.
The foundation also provides details about:
- Upcoming conferences
- Volunteer opportunities
- Fundraising events
- The International Symposium on Malignant Mesothelioma
- The most recently published mesothelioma research
- Complementary and alternative medicine
- Asbestos prevention
If you aren’t feeling a lack of knowledge, but instead a lack of alliance, take some time to read their stories from long-term mesothelioma survivors.
