I am a medical oncologist who treats a large number of patients with mesothelioma. From a physician's point of view, perhaps the most important aspect of the organization is the grant support they provide to fund research. Too few grant opportunities are available for this uncommon disease, yet MARF has been a consistent source of funding over the years for the top, scientifically peer reviewed projects in mesothelioma. Equally important, though, is, the tremendous emotional and educational support that MARF provides to my patients. I give each of my mesothelioma patients information about the foundation, and everyone who contacts them has benefited. I have been involved with MARF for about 10 years, and have seen dramatic change in organization over that time. The foundation has clearly established itself as the leading advocacy, educational, and scientific organization fighting this disease.
