Review for MESOTHELIOMA APPLIED RESEARCH FOUNDATION INC, Alexandria, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My son was diagnosed with mesothelioma in December 2006, and died in September 2009. Between his diagnosis and his death he sought information on the nature of the disease and possible treatment options. The most useful, honest and unfiltered information he received was from personnel and contacts at the Mesothelioma Advanced Research Foundation. My son contacted the Foundation numerous times for advice on potential treatments and clinical trials, and relied on them for important guidance. He came to believe they were the preeminent source of this information, and they provided this information with a caring attitude and strong psychological support as well.
As I began to learn about the Foundation, it was apparent to me that their stated focus of guiding the patient victims and providing funds for research was more than an altruistic goal. They really live that mission. As a result I have joined the Board of Directors and committed my time as well as monetary resources to their very worthy efforts.
