Review for MESOTHELIOMA APPLIED RESEARCH FOUNDATION INC, Alexandria, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband was diagnosed December 31, 2001 with meso at the young age of 39. We were told the same by our local physician, get your affairs in order, travel to Europe etc....you have 6 to 8 months to live. I immediately hit the internet that New Year's Eve night and located the Meso Foundation. Left them a message and received a call from Chris Hahn, the Executive Director that January 2, 2002. I contribute that initial contact to my husbands' survial of 5 years. He succumbed to the disease December 21, 2006 at the age of 44. The outstanding caring, knowledge, assistance this foundation has given my family is beyond words. My heartfelt thank you and gratitude to this wonderful organization.

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

is their caring for all. Their compassion to help in all aspects of finding a cure, helping the victims and their families get the best possible care, and to assist them in coping.

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

one word, OUTSTANDING.

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

assist in research to find the ultimate, a cure. To assist victims and their families in medical costs, travel and housing at a medical facility that specializes in meso, which these facilities are far and few between.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Board Member & I assist the Foundation with my experience of the disease.
