Surviving Cancer

Two years ago my Aunt succumbed to breast cancer. I remember her as a bubbly person who had the loudest laugh I've ever heard. She was a teacher by profession and was a disciplinarian to her three children. Her youngest and only daughter was almost the same age as mine. It was difficult at first for the family to accept what happened.Time and faith in God helped them heal and recover. As far as I can remember, I also had an uncle who died from cancer. I'm not quite sure what type of cancer he had but he worked in a chemical company.

Mesothelioma is a kind of cancer that is caused by being exposed to asbestos. There are two types of it. One is called pleural mesothelioma and the other one is called peritoneal. In relation to mesothelioma prognosis, there are individuals who survived this disease. Paul Kraus is one of them. He was initially told he would only live for a short time. Despite that, he never lost hope. He survived and is enjoying his cancer-free life. He shares how he got out of it with his best-selling book entitled Surviving Mesothelioma and Other Cancers. If you want to know your legal rights, there are also mesothelioma lawyers who could help you with your case.
