  1. Hi,
    My name is Nick Hare, and I am the Public Awareness Director for While I was browsing through a number of health and cancer sites, I came across your website and was very impressed by the information you have listed.
    Pleural mesothelioma is the most common type of mesothelioma, a rare cancer that develops in the lungs. It is almost solely caused by exposure to asbestos, which was used in everything in children’s toys, house-hold insulation, and naval carriers. Our website has the most up to date and comprehensive information about Pleural Mesothelioma on the web today. We are HON code certified with information ranging from a complete list of symptoms, to treatment options, and steps to take after a diagnosis.
    I noticed that you already had some other related resources listed on your resources page at and figured you might be interested in including a link to our site as well. Please let me know if you are interested – I’m available by e-mail at nhare(@) With your help, we can educate the public about the dangers of asbestos and hopefully save some lives. Thanks again!
    Best Regards,
    Nick Hare
    Public Awareness Director
