Mesothelioma Resources: Support Groups

Patients diagnosed with mesothelioma, an extremely aggressive cancer with no cure, often feel overwhelmed, afraid, and alone. Fortunately, mesothelioma patients do not have to cope with this devastating disease alone. In fact, various resources exist for both mesothelioma victims and families.

One valuable resource for mesothelioma victims is support groups. This resource helps those affected by mesothelioma cope with the emotional needs created by the cancer. Support group participants, which may include mesothelioma victims, family and friends, meet and discuss various aspects of the disease. For example, people exchange information about mesothelioma, discuss practical problems such as managing side effects or returning to work after treatment, and share their feelings.

Mesothelioma Resources: Financial Support

Another resource available for mesothelioma victims is financial support, which may be obtained through a lawsuit. Because mesothelioma is almost always caused by occupational asbestos exposure, many mesothelioma victims may be entitled to compensation for their expenses. In addition, many mesothelioma lawsuits are handled on a contingency basis, meaning mesothelioma victims are not required to pay any money up front for a lawyer to handle their case.
