Mesothelioma is a Serious Thing
A good friend's mother has mesothelioma. She's had it for quite some time. You know, you hear the name of any disease and even though you may not know exactly what it is; it gives you pause. So, I lloked it up. The National Cancer Institute states that: "Malignant mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer, is a disease in which cancer (malignant) cells are found in the sac lining the chest (the pleura), the lining of the abdominal cavity (the peritoneum) or the lining around the heart (the pericardium)." If it's something that's in your life one way or another, you need to educate yourself about mesothelioma.
