Shocked, as most families are when they hear a diagnosis of mesothelioma, we scoured the net looking for information. We landed at asbestos.com and what a blessing it has been. After we communicated by email back and forth, one day we found a huge package overnighted to us by Amy. I was in disbelief that she acted so quickly! Amy has been in touch with me since October, emailing once or twice a week to give us support and to answer any questions we might have. She introduced us to Danielle, who was as caring and willing to help as Amy. She explained the process of filing a claim and set up telephone and home interviews. We did not have to go anywhere for the meeting. The investigator came to us. I cannot thank Amy and Danielle enough for how they have embraced our family and provided support. My mother passed away just three months after diagnosis at the age of 88. Prior to that, she was a very active senior. If you need help as we did, please contact asbestos.com. They will take very good care of you.

We’re very fortunate to know the Veterans Department and the whole team at Asbestos.com. We were in dire straits, and they gave us hope.

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.

My thanks to Dr. Smart and the team at the Mesothelioma Center. They have been phenomenal in providing resources and support to help our family understanding the challenges we will be facing as my dad battles with this disease. Dr. Smart has been understanding and very informative and has been an excellent resource, especially in understanding treatment options and how to work with our local doctors to develop a good relationship and be informed.

The Mesothelioma Center’s website is, in my opinion, the best resource for anyone suffering from cancer due to asbestos. Thank you for helping me determine the best treatment plan for my cancer and being part of my miracle.

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.

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.

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.

Hearing the news about my mother’s diagnosis was heartbreaking. I felt lost, I didn’t know how I could help or where to seek the best medical care. I started researching specialists online and shortly after Dr. Smart reached out to me. She has been extremely helpful and encouraging throughout this entire process. Even though we aren’t located in her area she has helped us get in contact and set up appointments with the best doctors/specialists nearby. She has always been available for any questions that we have and she even sent us a binder full of helpful resources. The patient advocates are amazing and true to their title. Dealing with this process is not easy but knowing that we have someone like Dr. Smart in our corner is reassuring and we are so grateful for her and The Mesothelioma Center.

Karen always calls to check on me, to see how I’m coming, how I’m doing. She just has really been so helpful in everything concerning this disease. I’m glad I chose Asbestos.com and was able to talk to her.

I can’t thank The Mesothelioma Center for their quick response to sending me information or for their willingness to have someone available to me or my family to answer questions.

We received such high-level, life-informing expertise from Dr. Smart at The Mesothelioma Cancer Center after my father was diagnosed with the disease. She expertly and thoughtfully explained the disease to us in way that was gentle, yet honest. We are forever grateful for the support we received from The Mesothelioma Center.

I contacted The Mesothelioma Center online and was pleasantly surprised at how quickly they responded to me in person! Danielle called me the same day! She is amazing and has a perfect balance of professionalism, compassion and knowledge, which really helped me understand this illness. She also sent us a wonderful packet of very helpful information, including diet, doctors and support groups. My brother was recently diagnosed with mesothelioma and she provided great insights and advice for him and our family on how to deal with this and the best next steps to take. Danielle also follows up with me regularly to see how my brother is doing and to answer any questions we may have. It is great to know she is there as we maneuver through this challenging time. I am very blessed to have found Danielle and appreciate all of the support.

Asbestos.com helped us getting through the red tape with the VA, getting the necessary forms for us. We’d probably be still battling without [Aaron’s] help; there’s no doubt about that.

I personally believe that, had it not been for [Karen’s] help, we might never have found out dad’s true diagnosis of mesothelioma.”

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.

Without Karen I am not sure my husband would still be here. She provided me with so much information along with help in the various ways too numerous to even mention.

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.

My family has only the highest compliment for the assistance and support that we received from The Mesothelioma Center. This is a staff of compassionate and knowledgeable individuals who respects what your family is experiencing and who goes the extra mile to make an unfortunate diagnosis less stressful. Information and assistance was provided by The Mesothelioma Center at no cost to our family.
