HOUSTON, Aug. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Mesothelioma.us, an online resource that features in-depth articles about mesothelioma, is now offering free information packets. As a spokesperson for http://mesothelioma.us/ explained, one of the complimentary booklets discusses mesothelioma treatment options, some of the top doctors in the country, and United States government clinical trials.
The second free booklet is designed with veterans in mind; it includes helpful information about claims and benefits, VA hospitals that are treating mesothelioma, and a special section for veterans of the United States Navy.
To sign up for the free information booklets, people simply need to visit Mesothelioma.us and enter their name and mailing address in a quick form on the main page of the site. Those who wish to speak to someone in person may call 1-800-763-9286 for immediate assistance. There is no obligation for either service.
As the spokesperson for Mesothelioma.us noted, the reason the booklet for veterans focuses especially on Navy vets is because this branch of the military was the most vulnerable to asbestos exposure. This is due to the large amounts of asbestos products that were used on the Navy vessels. Mesothelioma, which is a rare form of cancer, has been linked to exposure to asbestos.
Unfortunately, Navy vets who spent a great deal of time below deck have the highest risk for developing mesothelioma. Products that often contained asbestos include vessel insulation, piping and plumbing, cement, brake pedals and gaskets.
"Like all other service members, Navy veterans have rights that include adequate health care, as well as financial compensation for their losses," noted the spokesperson for Mesothelioma.us.
"If you are a Navy veteran and have been diagnosed with mesothelioma or other asbestos-related illnesses, you can contact us to learn more about how much you may be entitled to in compensation for the pain, suffering and medical expenses this disease has inflicted upon you."
Mesothelioma.us is an authoritative website that includes comprehensive resources for mesothelioma patients and their families. The site includes up-to-date information about treatment options, major U.S. cancer centers, clinical trials, veteran's claims and benefit information and mesothelioma lawyers.
