The Meso Foundation website is an excellent source of information and resources. To make your browsing easier and to help you find information important to you, I have outlined below some sections that you might find useful.
BULLETIN BOARD/FORUM -If you’re on this blog, chances are that you are already familiar with the Meso Foundation bulletin board. If you don’t know about it, click here to visit. Mesothelioma patients live all over the country, making it difficult for individuals to meet others dealing with this disease. Our bulletin board lets you create a virtual support network with others affected by meso. Here, you will be able to talk to other patients and caregivers, and obtain information from them, about their own treatments, experiences, as well as tips and solutions for some of the most common medical issues stemming from mesothelioma treatment.
IMMEDIATE EXPERT HELP – This is a crucial resource for those just diagnosed who don’t know where to turn for help, as well as for folks who have been dealing with meso for some time, and would like additional information and help navigating through options.
MESOTHELIOMA INFORMATION – Browse this section to learn about the disease itself, its treatment, read the stories of hope and get information about asbestos.
MESOTHELIOMA SCIENCE / RESEARCH ARCHIVES – The world of medical journal abstracts is sometimes difficult to navigate. Use this section to look at important studies for mesothelioma, sorted by topic.
UPCOMING MESO FOUNDATION VOLUNTEER EVENTS – This section is meant to be a guide for fundraising events. If you are having an event that you’d like added to this page, please let me know by emailing me.
ADVOCACY AND AWARENESS – Keep in touch with your congressional representatives through our Action Center. If you don’t know who your representatives are, you can look them up here. When talking to your representatives or to anyone else that you think can help, make sure to refer to information and mesothelioma statistics on The Tragic Facts page.
CREATE YOUR OWN FUNDRAISING PAGE AND TRACK DONATIONS YOU RAISE -Whether you are participating in a 5K race, hosting a bowlathon, or embarking on a letter writing fundraising campaign, this tool can help you manage your gifts and donors. Create your account, set-up your fundraising goal, and let your contacts know they can donate on this page.
TRIBUTE WALL – This section of our website is dedicated to the loved ones we have lost to mesothelioma. To add your loved one to the Tribute Wall, contact me with their name and if you wish, also with a photo and paragraph about them.
