Mesothelioma Awareness Partnership:

Mesothelioma Treatment Options: For our veterans.

Dear Friends at the National Association of American Veterans,

I came across the National Association of American Veterans site today and noticed we share a similar interest in the health and wellness of our veterans. My name is Alex White and I am the Communications Director for Mesothelioma Symptoms. As you are probably aware, mesothelioma is one of the deadliest forms of cancer today. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most misunderstood diseases in recent times and continues to cause extensive harm. However, our site, http://www.mesotheliomasymptoms.com, is an excellent resource to learn about the dangers of this disease.

Members of the U.S. Armed Services have not only dedicated their lives to their country, but are also unfortunately the most common victims of mesothelioma due to their increased risk of exposure to asbestos. The military has used asbestos in various aspects of work and construction and ultimately affected close to one million individuals of the 25 million veterans in the U.S.

I noticed on the National Association of American Veterans links page that you direct visitors to other veterans health-related websites http://www.naavets.org/links.html. I would be grateful if you shared our site with visitors on your links page to help raise awareness of the risk mesothelioma poses to veterans; Mesothelioma Symptoms is an extensive database of information and resources for patients and their families to better understand the symptoms of mesothelioma and the various aspects of diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, as well as mesothelioma life expectancy. Please let me know if this partnership is of interest to you. I look forward to hearing your response.

Thanks again,

Alex White
Communications Director
