The #1 Mesothelioma Cancer Resource
Introduction
The Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance at Mesothelioma.com is dedicated to increasing awareness of mesothelioma cancer, a disease caused by asbestos exposure. The Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance is the largest web-based mesothelioma community of its kind, offering a place to share current clinical information, new treatment options for asbestos cancer patients, and personal journeys with mesothelioma.

Since 1996, we have been educating the public about the risks of asbestos exposure. Those who have worked in certain occupations, including miners, auto repair technicians, firefighters, shipyard laborers and military veterans are at an increased risk of developing mesothelioma cancer.

With the creation of the Mesothelioma Community Resource Network, we have renewed our commitment to connect these mesothelioma cancer patients and their families to a wealth of vital resources, including mesothelioma doctors, complementary therapies, financial planning resources, and more.
