(PRWEB) December 12, 2014
The Mesothelioma Victims Center is calling attention to a recent news article about a construction worker in the UK who had been diagnosed with mesothelioma at the time of his death. The group says, “This is one of the most moving articles we have ever seen on the topic of this rare form of cancer because it includes quotes from the victim's family members.
"The article said, 'Dad was a carpenter and loved his job. He used to come home covered in dust head-to-toe but no one knew. The deterioration in his last few months was devastating. Asbestos kills good, hardworking people. It’s a nasty, nasty disease and it’s very hard to come to terms with. We miss and adore him so much.' The reason we share this story is to get the news out there about this aggressive disease.”
The Mesothelioma Victims Center's number one goal is to provide all diagnosed victims of this rare form of cancer with instant access to the nation's most skilled mesothelioma compensation attorneys. The group has many years of experience and know that the quality and training of the attorney matters when it comes to compensation for this rare form of cancer.
