Mesothelioma, what options are available?

I was recently informed that a relative of mine has mesothelioma and my first reaction was, what is that?  After some reading I found out mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that develops from the protective lining that covers many of the body’s internal organs and is usually caused by exposure to asbestos.

Once I understood what it was I wanted to find out what could be done to help my relative.  Not only medically but what they could do legally since they had definitely had asbestos exposure from working in the construction industry.  What I found was a mesothelioma lawyer and I gave my relative their information so they have a chance at being taken care of financially.
