The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We have had great success in the past in providing do's, and don'ts for families dealing with a mesothelioma diagnosis, so we have decided to increase this type of honest information for families dealing with a loved one in hospice care who was recently diagnosed with mesothelioma.
“We want everyone involved in a mesothelioma diagnosis to have the proper tools to handle this difficult situation. This form of cancer is rare—The CDC says that about 2,500 people in the entire United States will be diagnosed this year. We are hoping that a very large percentage of that number of diagnosed victims, and their family members will find our resources helpful, and we only put out information we know will help. However, we can only help a diagnosed victim, or their family if they call us at 866-714-6466. With information on the nation's top mesothelioma attorneys that consistently earn their clients the very best compensation possible, we feel like the decision to contact us is made easy, and we urge diagnosed victims, or their family members to call us anytime." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
