Mesothelioma cancer alliance

At the Mesothelioma Caner Alliance we work to provide support for those suffering from or supporting those with mesothelioma. This cancer affects men and women between the ages of 50 and 70. Typically it is associated with exposure to the asbestos, which can be found in homes, buildings and places of work. Because of it's rarity we like to make sure the patient has access to as much information as possible. We provide information on every aspect of mesothelioma from the different types ,symptoms and causes to the care, treatment and the special community groups they can be involved in. We also provide support for caregivers and survivors, helping to raise awareness with our friend Heather Von St James who is a 10 year survivor. In addition, we are active in the advocacy community that works tirelessly to get asbestos banned in the US and to raise awareness for the diseases and health complications that can result from exposure to asbestos.



MAAC is an on-line resource for those who have mesothelioma and those looking to learn more about it. Mesothelioma is a rare cancer so it's important for patients to have access to as much information as possible.
