A Cancer Called Mesothelioma

As summary, mesothelioma is a cancer caused by damaged asbestos, which is airborne.  It is a cancer of the mesothelium which is a lining found in most internal organs.  Those afflicted with this illness finds breathing difficult.  Other side effects included exhaustion, lack of motivation, minimal intake of food, extreme weight loss, and pain in the chest area.  It is a kind of cancer that is painful.  This prompted me to write once:

What if you have cancer?  And you are rich?  Will you be giving a part of your money to whom? Or will you enjoy to the fullest, at its extreme points?  Will you ask forgiveness from someone you have wronged?  Or will you put an end to a long-standing affair with another woman other than your wife?  Or will you put an end to this affair with a married man?

Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that will give you no choice and will render you useless because of the pain.

It is not February now where cancer awareness is celebrated but we need to always raise awareness for prevention, detection and treatment.

  1. me, too, Small Town Mommy. as someone with low pain threshold, i couldn't imagine how one with this affliction lasts. 😦


  2. I praise your decision to write about this not very well known issue. People need to be more aware of this disease.
    I also had a post on my blog, written by Heather Von StJames, a mesothelioma cancer survivor and I was touched by her story.

    Thanks for this.


  3. if there is a survivor, it's good news. i am happy to learn, too, that asbestos was banned from our country. there is a need for awareness indeed.
