Programs: The Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation (also known as the Meso Foundation) is the only 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to eradicating mesothelioma and easing the suffering caused by this cancer. It does so by focusing on four main program areas: • RESEARCH: Funding and support of the highest level of peer-reviewed mesothelioma research; • EDUCATION: Educating patients, their families, risk populations, and the public at large about mesothelioma; • SUPPORT: Providing patient support services; • ADVOCACY: Advocating Congress for increased federal funding for mesothelioma research. The Meso Foundation is the only non-government funder of peer-reviewed scientific research to establish life-saving treatments for mesothelioma. To date, the Foundation has directly awarded over $8.7 million and, through its advocacy efforts, has directed another $8.9 million to promising mesothelioma research.

This is a great foundation with purpose. It has helped many families that are going through an unbelievably tough time. Trying to provide answers, where there are none. Trying to provide solutions, where they are needed. They have played a very influential role in members of my families lives. We all appreciate everything they have done.
