Review for Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation Inc, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After a 2 week stay in the hospital, my husband was diagnosed w/pleural meso in March of 2008. He was only 51. The pulmonologist told us to go home & get our affairs in order. Of course, we didn't do that but started on a chemo regimen with a local oncologist. It has been 16 months & we've had our ups & downs with this horrific disease. The day of the diagnosis, I got on the internet & found MARF. After looking at other sites, MARF was the most informative & personable site & so started our relationship with staff, victims, volunteers, widows, caregivers and world of information to help in our fight with meso. Everyone is so caring & compassionate because they too, have been touched by this disease on a personal level. Most importantly this foundation has given us hope.

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

several states proclaiming Meso Awareness Day on Sept. 26th.

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

more MARF locations throughout the country for local network.

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

the friendships I've made and the knowledge learned from caring & compassionate people.

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

be closer to finding a cure for mesothelioma!

Ways to make it better...

ALL our family had computer knowledge to share in this wonderful organization called MARF!

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

funding for research & cure; awareness not only to the public but our national leader & all under him!

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

no matter what time of day, you can find comfort & hope at MARF. BELIEVE IN A CURE!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  General Member of the Public & I am caregiver to my husband & use the advice & suggestions I find at MARF. I've developed friendships with many Meso Warriors.
