The victim said, "I was floored by the news of the diagnosis. I thought ‘How can I have that?

The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, “Recently we came across a news article about a woman in the UK who had minimal exposure to asbestos roughly 40 years earlier. What we want to point out about the story is the minimal amount of time she had been working around the toxic asbestos fibers as opposed to any shipyard worker, oil refinery worker, manufacturing worker, or US Navy Veteran who might have had decades of daily exposure. If an individual can develop mesothelioma after only having minimal exposure, imagine the likelihood of a trades worker developing this rare form of cancer.

"The article mentions that she was exposed to asbestos during a two-year stint working for a dry cleaning service in Norfolk in her 20s. The mother-of-three was diagnosed in February and had major surgery to remove fluid from her lung. The victim said, "I was floored by the news of the diagnosis. I thought ‘How can I have that?’ It wasn’t a lifestyle choice, I was earning a living.”

“If we had two extremely important pieces of advice for diagnosed victims of mesothelioma it would be: call us at 866-714-6466 for instant access to the nation's most skilled mesothelioma compensation attorneys who consistently get the best compensation for their clients on a nationwide basis or visit us online at http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com. Both ways will get any diagnosed victim and/or their family members the best possible treatment options."
