What is mesothelioma? Mesothelioma is a cancer that, although rare, still claims thousands of lives every year. It affects the mesothelium, a layer of mesothelial cells that lines the specific parts of your body and most of the internal organs. There are four types of mesothelioma, with the most common form affecting the pleura, the thin membrane lining the lungs (pleural). This is because the cause of mesothelioma, asbestos fibers, usually enters the body when inhaled. The lesser common types are peritoneal, which affects the abdomen, pericardial, which affects the heart, and testicular (the rarest type). All of these are caused by inhaling or digesting asbestos fibers.

I got my settlement letter on Wednesday. It’s a day I honestly never actually thought I would see. I wanted to sincerely thank you and your team for all of your hard work and time. I think it’s also important that you hear how much your work not only made a financial difference for my family to catch up from all of the medical expenses, but more importantly, that we don't have to worry about our financial future with my husband being gone. — Jen D.
