Daughter of a mesothelioma patient

Because of their guidance, I was able to navigate getting my mother into MD Anderson when her case got put aside by mistake in all the COVID- 19 craziness.

Vanessa was amazing and I can’t recommend enough reaching out to them. I thought it was a gimmick to get you to hire a lawyer, but I was so wrong. They truly seemed to want to help meso patients and KNOW what you need to ask and do in order to get help.”

Danielle DiPietro was an invaluable resource for me.

Her suggestions and recommendations guided us towards stellar practitioners in our area. Without her advocacy, I feel we would have been receiving less than optimal medical and legal care for mesothelioma. Receiving the diagnosis was a shock and I felt lost initially. I wish everyone could take advantage of this FREE assistance.

Thank you for all that you have done to make filing my brother’s VA Mesothelioma claim as easy as possible.

It is hard enough to deal with the heartache of learning that our beloved brother and son was diagnosed with Stage IV Peritoneal Mesothelioma caused by asbestos exposure and then to wonder what could we do to help make him as comfortable as possible. Your friendly voice and desire to help prompted me to call you back.

Many testimonials highlight the crucial role that legal and financial assistance plays in securing justice and support for mesothelioma patients and their families. These personal stories shed light on the tremendous impact of skilled attorneys and financial resources.

Endorsements for Legal & Financial Aid

After being diagnosed with mesothelioma, my husband was at a loss. We knew nothing of this disease. I searched online and found The Mesothelioma Center. After a quick look around their site I searched no longer.

I felt comfortable asking for information and within the hour Dr. Smart, a patient advocate, had called me. She was exactly who we needed! She answered many of my questions, guided me with phone numbers and put us in touch with an attorney (the same company recommended by our doctor). The attorneys from Weitz & Luxenberg are helpful beyond measure. They are advocating for us and we will get help with medical bills and financial support as we travel this road. Their response was rapid and continuous, as we needed. This is a team effort with regular phone calls from Dr. Smart to check on Richard, questions answered and Richard’s case being filed by knowledgeable attorneys. We are elderly and we feel protected and safe with this great team who reaches out to those with mesothelioma. We are truly grateful.

Mr. Lahav exhibited kindness to myself and my family regarding my mother’s recent mesothelioma diagnosis. I could never have expected such a selfless act carried through by any organization, non-profit or otherwise.

Because of you, my mother is going to be financially set once the settlements come in. Without your guidance, my father would probably have not gotten as far as he did and would have passed not knowing how my mother would be taken care of.

Finding Power in Knowledge

The patient advocates are absolutely amazing and helpful! I am so very pleased with the information and the emotional support that I have received from everyone!

When I felt all hope was lost, Amy gave me great information and was so compassionate. I do not feel alone and I know there is strong support for anyone dealing with this tragic disease. I received a free information package, including a recipe book, information on the disease, a toll-free number to contact for assistance and a book with the answers to 100 questions that are commonly asked. This information alone was worth my time! I read for hours and hours and just that alone, knowledge, can be a great comfort. To fully understand this disease, to just have the knowledge! Thank you all! Thank you so, so much.
