Mesothelioma patients and their families often need support. Sometimes it is found in the small community of other mesothelioma patients, other times leaning on your own family and friends is all that is needed.
But this spring, mesothelioma patients and their families have two opportunities to learn, draw support, and empower each other at conferences from two of the leading organizations and brings breakthroughs and hope to the mesothelioma community. Both of these conferences are excellent ways to meet other people on the journey of mesothelioma, to increase your knowledge of the disease, and to listen to experts in the field.
