Recently I was contacted by a person name Virgil (I am omitting his last name). He said he came across the Healthy Lombard website and thought the foundation might be interested in his message.
Virgil was recently diagnosed with mesothelioma, which is a cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. From automotive to demolition work, he had many jobs in his life that contributed to his exposure. On some jobs, the air was so thick with debris and asbestos he could taste it in his mouth.
When Virgil was diagnosed with mesothelioma he needed immediate medical attention. He found a few websites on the internet that are supposed to help people with his type of cancer but nobody got back to him.
Then he found Mesothelioma.net. Even though he contacted them on a Sunday one of their patient advocates gave him a call back within minutes. They gave Virgil a great deal of helpful information on doctors and available resources.
As a result of their website Virgil is now being treated at the National Cancer Institute and the patient advocates have even provided him with financial assistance so he could afford a place to live during his cancer treatments.
If he had not reached out to this website Virgil says that he would likely be homeless and more importantly in hospice waiting to die. He truly fells that hese people gave him my only chance at survival.
Virgil noted that he saw a cancer-related link on the Healthy Lombard website. He suggested that perhaps some of our website visitors could use the help of Mesothelioma.net since the website is filled with information on mesothelioma treatments and doctors, asbestos trust funds for victims, and a lot more. They also sponsor The American Cancer Society, the MD Cancer Center, and the Make a Wish Foundation.
