MESOTHELIOMA APPLIED RESEARCH FOUNDATION INC
July 23, 2009

I fully credit the Foundation with saving my life. I was diagnosed with peritoneal mesothelioma in August 2006, and was told by my local physicians that I should get my affairs in order. I found the Meso Foundation and they led me to a specialist, and I will be celebrating my 3 year survival anniversary soon. their work in research and advocacy in this field is unmatched. I am honored to be affiliated with them.

The Great!

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

every patient given hope, and in the emerging awareness surrounding mesothelioma and continuing asbestos dangers.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

do nowhere near the job Chris Hahn does. His dedication is amazing to me.

More feedback

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

their adaptability to current circumstances, and their ability to connect the patient, research, caretaker, and medical communities on a common front.

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

outstanding. I only wish there were a few more, as they are overwhelmed with the work they do.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

possibly find a cure for mesothelioma, and launch a major public awareness campain about the dangers of asbestos still in use.

Ways to make it better...

The foundation were bigger and had more visibility. Easier to find.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

$$$$$$$$, awareness, and the apathy of our own government officials in the fight to ban asbestos and fund meso research

One thing I'd also say is that...

the Meso Foundation is OUTSTANDING in its dedication to its cause.
