Some of you may encounter parents who are suffering from Mesothelioma as a result of their military service or from working in industries that used asbestos, and as a support to our veterans, I am including a link to The Mesothelioma Center for your reference..
From Lauren Johansmeyer, a member of their Public Outreach department:
Countless veterans are currently suffering from life-threatening illnesses as a result of exposure to asbestos, a material that was commonly used in hundreds of military applications, products and ships because of its resistance to fire. The Mesothelioma Center provides a complete list of occupations, ships and shipyards that could have put our veterans at risk for developing asbestos-related diseases. In addition, we have thousands of articles regarding asbestos and mesothelioma, and we've even created a veterans-specific section on our website to provide the public with more information about the dangers of asbestos exposure.
