Members of the U.S. Armed Services are unfortunately the most common victims of mesothelioma due to their increased risk of exposure to asbestos. Many have and will eventually succumb to mesothelioma. If you are a veteran and been diagnosed with mesothelioma, click to get help including new treatments and clinical trials.



Mesothelioma Prognosis Network is an advocacy organization that works to spread awareness about the dangers of asbestos exposure. Unfortunately many veterans were not aware of their exposure to this harmful material, which was wildly used throughout many branches of the military. We are proud to offer veterans free services such as finding local doctors and treatment centers, hosting a support group monthly, and the help of our VA-accredited claims agent.


The Health Trust mission is to guide veterans and their loved ones towards answers, care options, and free health care solutions to improve their lives and understand mesothelioma.
