ORLANDO, Fla., March 19, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — The Mesothelioma Center at Asbestos.com, the nation’s most trusted resource for mesothelioma survivors and people diagnosed with other asbestos-related diseases, recently partnered with The Balancing Act on Lifetime TV. The program sheds light on mesothelioma and the many ways patients can seek support from Asbestos.com. The unique segment aired on March 18, 2024 and featured mesothelioma survivor Kim Madril, surgical oncologist Dr. Jacques Fontaine and Asbestos.com Patient Advocate Karen Selby, RN.

Dr. Jacques Fontaine, a surgical oncologist with decades of experience treating mesothelioma, discussed the complexity of this rare and aggressive cancer that develops from asbestos exposure. He explained the importance of seeking treatment with an experienced specialist.

“Mesothelioma’s symptoms are quite difficult to differentiate from other more common diseases, and that’s why it’s so difficult to diagnose mesothelioma,” said Dr. Fontaine. “The treatment is quite complex, and it’s ever-changing.”

From the moment a close friend connected her with Asbestos.com, Madril received free informational resources, support from a Patient Advocate and assistance with financial compensation from experienced mesothelioma attorneys.
