Agenda: Help us fight this pernicious cancer with links to asbestos

"MESOTHELIOMA" is a difficult word to pronounce – typically "medical". Me-zo-thee-lee-oma is how you say it. I often find myself spelling it out phonetically when introducing it to a patient who might have it or confirming that they do – and what that means for them and their future. Among the pantheon of cancers, "Meso" is considered rare and irrefutably linked to prior asbestos exposure in almost all cases.
