(PRWEB) July 19, 2011
In an ongoing effort to create a supportive network for clients suffering from mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos, the law firm of Clapper, Patti, Schweizer & Mason is now publishing a bi-monthly newsletter. The first edition was released this week with positive response from mesothelioma patients as well as their family members and caregivers.
The July edition featured the story of a daughter who lost her father, Louis, to mesothelioma after he had spent years working around asbestos as an electrician’s mate aboard Navy ships. Many Veterans were exposed to asbestos in the line of duty, although those in the Navy run an even higher risk of exposure and related illness. Marie, Louis' daughter, shared her story with us in hopes that it may provide support to other families who are just finding out that a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma.
Like many, Marie and her mother and brothers had never heard the word ‘mesothelioma’ and did not have any idea what the diagnosis for their father meant. After some amount of research, they realized they had little time left with their father. Despite ongoing research efforts, there is no known cure and, for the majority, survival times are quite short.
The first newsletter also includes information about the new brochure and booklet recently published that contains the latest medical and legal developments regarding asbestos related diseases. These two publications contain all the essential information a newly diagnosed patient would need in terms of treating mesothelioma and getting compensation from companies that knew of the dangers of asbestos and yet did not protect workers or the public.
If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, please contact us at 1-800-440-4262, email newsletter(at)clapperlaw(dot)com, or visit website to request a copy of the new brochure, booklet and/or newsletter.
