I volunteer to help others overcome living with Mesothelioma. This organization helped save my life, it's the least I can do to help it help other patients and community.

Ways to make it better...

have the government require all oncologists to attend their conferences.

MARF saved my life! Without the information or caring provided by this wonderful organization I would not have made the choices for treatment that is so hard to find for Mesothelioma. I saw a grandchild born and can watch her grow after being told I would die within a year. Without the research and patient connections this organization supports, most of us would think we are alone with this illness. I now help new patients, families and even my other doctors learn what the options are for surviving. My story can be found at the website, no need to tell it again. I am alive!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Patient outreach and the information given out to new patients and the increasing years of survivors.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Being able to help those that are affected with Mesothelioma and give them hope that surviving is possible, and to get the chance to meet the research and medical community to speak one on one to them each year at the international symposium.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

are the most caring dedicated people who are all trying to believe there will be a cure.
