Review for Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation Inc, Alexandria, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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!

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.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Client Served & I was told of treatment and specialist options and given emotional support throughout my treatment to the present. My family was given the information needed to help care for me.
