MESOTHELIOMA APPLIED RESEARCH FOUNDATION INC
August 8, 2014

The ONLY organization related to mesothelioma that helps patients, caregivers find the right path.
When I was diagnosed in 2009, Mary was the only person who called me and asked how can we help you? What is you plan? who is your doctor/ you team?
Since then I have enormous respect and love for all the people working for MARF.
Plus, this is the only organization that connects all of us somehow related to Mesothelioma. With organizing Symposiums and events, the Meso family comes together - patients, caregivers, widowers, doctors, nurses... can be found in the same room.... where all questions can be asked and answered; happy news and worries shared with people who understand.

Few days after my Meso diagnoses in 2009 (and online search) several organizations contacted me. Among those lawyers and whoever called me a nice lady named Mary stood out. She did not mention any kind of law case or money - she was focused on giving me information about treatment options, doctors and just my well-being. I loved her right away.
Once MARF moved to east coast I got more involved and only thing I can say is that I love everyone working or somehow connected to the organization. It is unique place where patients, caregivers, doctors even some lawyers come together for one cause - to find a cure.
And looking for the cure and financing research is what brought me close to MARF and all of these people. As a person diagnosed at 30years old, I am happy that I can be here, I am thankful that someone before me tried treatment that worked very well for me and I am more than pleased that research that my doctor does with my tissue (and is sponsored by MARF's grant) will help someone in the future.

Nowadays MARF offers support groups for patients, caregivers, for people who lost a loved ones to meso... MARF has created this amazing family that cares for each member, gives support and hope
