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

Rating: 5 stars  

My son was diagnosed with peritoneal mesothelioma 10 years ago, sadly before the Meso Foundation was established for the sole purpose of funding research to find treatment and a cure for this asbestos induced cancer. I have seen the progress over the past years in the ability of patients to fight off mesothelioma for longer and longer periods of time, all thanks to the Foundation's great generosity in funding promising research for treatment and a cure - its only mission. Please help the Meso Foundation end this disease by giving generously. It is too late for my son, but future victims will thank you.

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

the knowledge that researchers know who their patients are and why they are working so hard.

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

dedicated beyond measure. They know no time limits, and work with single-minded focus: to find treatment, a cure and put an end to the scourge of asbestos poisoning.

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

fund highly promising research that the Meso Foundation sadly must ignore because of lack of money. 10 million bucks could get us to a cure so much faster... for the sake of current and future victims. Pleae help!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Board Member & After the death of my 33 year old son from theis dreadful asbestos induced cancer, I turned my anger into action by accepting a Board position to encourage others to help eliminate this disease by funding much needed research. Please join us.
