Mesothelioma is a rare cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. The cancer can start in the lining of the lungs, abdomen or heart. Typically, people get exposed to asbestos in many ways and our firefighters, military, and construction workers are the ones who are at a higher risk of coming into contact with it, due to the fact that they work around a lot of building materials that contain asbestos. However, those who have served in the military are the most impacted group by mesothelioma. The Mesothelioma Veterans Center offers free support and resources for those Veterans who are diagnosed with mesothelioma.
