We at Mesothelioma Clinic know that the battle with cancer is a difficult one.
And that’s why we’re here — to help you in your fight against mesothelioma. Mesothelioma Clinic is a public
service. It’s staffed by people who know this horrific disease and are committed to helping you survive.
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs formally recognizes mesothelioma as a service-related illness.
American military veterans have accounted for 30 percent of all known mesothelioma cases since 1999 — even though
they are only 8 percent of the nation’s population. Veterans at highest risk for the disease are those who served in
the U.S. Navy or Coast Guard at any point between World War II and the late 1990s. Serving your country may have negatively
affected your health in unexpected ways.
