The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "While our number one goal will always be making certain a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma, or their family members, receive the best possible compensation for this rare form of cancer, we are just as committed to being a unsurpassed resource when it comes to possible treatment options. That is why we are beginning a new campaign highlighting the nation's top treatment facilities for this rare disease.
"When we say treatment options, we mean making certain the diagnosed victim, or their family knows who to call for things like second opinions. As we would like to explain with one call to 866-714-6466, there are world class mesothelioma treatment centers here in the US that are the best at what they do. One of these resources is the MD Anderson Cancer Clinic in Houston, Texas. We have provided a link to their web site for interested diagnosed victims, and their family members." http://www.mdanderson.org/patient-and-cancer-information/cancer-information/cancer-types/mesothelioma/index.html
The Mesothelioma Victims Center is also urging family members of an adult parent who had long term exposure to asbestos at a workplace to make certain the parent's medical doctor is aware of the exposure, and getting an annual checkup that includes a chest x-ray that might expose possible issues. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
