MESOTHELIOMA APPLIED RESEARCH FOUNDATION INC
July 13, 2009

I have had the privilage of working with people at the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation (MARF) since it began. It has literally helped to save hundreds of lives by giving not only hope but by actually giving advice to patients who are fighting an orphan disease. Most, if not all patients are told there is nothing that can be done for them when the are diagosised with this horrific cancer and given about 6 months to live. MARF not only given them HOPE but also helps with "scholoships" to help patients that don't have the means to get to their first doctors appointment. There are only a handful of specialiest that treat this disease and MARF raises more awareness and funding than government ever has. Having just lost my husband this past April to mesothelioma, I can tell that the MARF organization is an organization that is not only needed but is a lifeline for many that have no place else to turn. shellysbelieving
