Thanks to Dr. Smart and the Mesothelioma Center, I went from knowing nothing about this disease to knowing how it is contracted, what it does to the body, treatments available, etc in just three short weeks. I went from totally overwhelmed to having an understanding of what we were facing and were to go for treatment. I was not very nice the first time Dr. Smart called. I was in a hospital room watching my husband go through 2 surgeries in 4 days. A day later, a shipment of materials arrived from the Center. It was exactly what I needed to help us deal with this terrible disease. We still have a long way to go but I now know I have the support of the center to direct me to the resources we will need. I watched a webinar put on by The Mesothelioma Center. Three weeks ago, doctors where asking us what questions we had. We didn’t know enough to even come up with a question. Now, I am able to ask the questions that we need to have answered. We were directed to doctors who are experts in this field. These are doctors that we are very comfortable with handling my husband’s care. They are not the team of doctors we started with but the ones that are the best fit for us. We are so grateful to Dr. Smart and the Center. We have many things related to this illness that we have to take care of, such as nutrition and the financial aspects. I know I can turn to the Mesothelioma Center for guidance. Three weeks ago, I didn’t know this organization existed. Today, I don’t know how we would have moved forward without this support.
My son Carlos was diagnosed with this terrible and unknown disease a few months ago. Thank God we found this Mesothelioma Center along the way and Vanessa Blanco who has provided us with information on hospitals and doctors who have been of great help. I am very grateful to them.
I found the Mesothelioma Center looking for answers on the internet. I recently found out that i was highly exposed to Asbestos back when I was in the Navy aboard the USS Marvin Shields during dry dock in 84-85. My PFT showed FEV-1 @35% I was looking for anything Asbestos related illnesses. Trying to figure out if I was eligible for the VA PACT ACT. I started communicating with Dennis Prothro. I told him I had a CT scan coming up, and he wanted me to contact him with the results. The was no cancer. I didn’t really know what to do. Couple of days after my CT scan @ 6:30 am MST the phone rings and it’s Dennis wanting to know those CT scan results. We talked for about 45 mins. I was very emotional (first time in a while….needed). That really meant a lot to me that he took the time out of his day to check on me.
Ms: DiPietro was very patient with myself as I was a first time novice dealing with my health issues concerning working on Ships Boilers all my professional career and even with calling my union with no assistance whatsoever she directed me on what should be done accordingly as I had no direction given from my numerous phone calls and she came through. I give her 6 Stars for all she has helped.
AWESOME and super quick assistance! Exactly what I was looking for so that I can assist my Veterans up in the frozen tundra’s of Michigan! Thanks again for your help!
