Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation | Mesothelioma Help
When diagnosed with mesothelioma, it is most important to find an expert with mesothelioma experience. Not all mesotheliomas are the same, and not all physicians have a track record with all types. Knowing who to turn to can make a big difference for that patient's outcome. Although currently there is only one FDA-approved treatment for mesothelioma, Alimta, there are a number of clinical trials open to mesothelioma patients. Mary Hesdorffer, a published nurse practitioner with over 16 years of experience treating mesothelioma, can help you make sense of your situation, identify the right experts for you, and direct you to clinical trails that apply to you.
If you already have a medical team that you trust, the Meso Foundation offers other patient services that might be of interest to you.
