About Mesothelioma Hope
Mesothelioma Hope was founded by a group of medical and legal advocates whose goal was to provide a comprehensive database for people diagnosed with mesothelioma. Today, Mesothelioma Hope works to assist those directly affected and help families, siblings and other caregivers provide support.
Mesothelioma is directly caused by exposure to asbestos. When microscopic asbestos fibers become airborne, they can be inhaled and lodged in a person’s lungs and go undetected for decades. It can take 20 to 50 years before a person develops alarming symptoms. Even worse, these symptoms are rarely noticed during the early stages of the disease. This is why most people are diagnosed in the later stages of mesothelioma.
What remains the most disturbing part of this story is how asbestos companies reacted to these discoveries. Asbestos manufacturers knew for decades that their product could cause serious health problems. However, they hid the truth from their customers, the government and the world.
