They inspire hope during unbearable times and also provide palliative care and comprehensive information to help guide patients and their loved ones toward the answers and support they need to improve their quality of life, prognosis, and life expectancy. Information available on their website includes asbestos exposure by Military Branch, Mesothelioma compensation, and Healthcare options.
Approximately thirty percent of patients diagnosed with mesothelioma are veterans who have served in the U.S. military. The high rate of veteran victims is due to the reliance of the military on asbestos for numerous applications. In previous years, the military used asbestos for its heat-resistant and fireproof characteristics. The Navy, Army, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard all utilized asbestos in nearly every form of transportation, electrical wiring, housing and insulation, just to name a few. Mesothelioma.net is here to help any veteran who has been diagnosed with asbestos-related cancer. Contact them at 1-800-692-8608 to find out if you are eligible to receive compensation.

The reason this cancer targets so many veterans is because of the prevalence of asbestos use in the military in the past. A large part of our mission is to help spread awareness to veterans and their families.
Veterans make up the largest group of mesothelioma victims, but many veterans avoid making VA and asbestos trust claims because they are complex and time-consuming. Our VA-accredited claims and evidence specialists have streamlined the process for all types of claims and will help veterans better understand the necessary paperwork, and will provide assistance for writing an exposure fact report. Our Patient Advocates also assist in gathering all the necessary documentation for trust fund applications.
