The Mesothelioma Victims Center is urging diagnosed victims of mesothelioma in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, or nationwide to strongly consider reaching out to the Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia for information about possible treatment options for mesothelioma. By coincidence, the CDC ranks Pennsylvania and West Virginia in the top six states for the incidence of mesothelioma.
The Victims Center believes the Fox Chase Cancer Center's website focused on mesothelioma might be one of the best in the nation, because it is constantly being updated with new information about mesothelioma treatment options, and research.
More about the Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia: "At Fox Chase Cancer Center, new technologies and cancer treatments often are available before becoming standard practice in the broader cancer-care community.
