As part of our mandate to act as an advocate for mesothelioma patients on multiple issues related to the disease, one of our aims is to lay the groundwork for a nationwide support network for patients, connecting patients with already existing support networks in Canada, as well as with centres with specific expertise in mesothelioma in the United States. To that end, the CMF has created two key supports for patients and caregivers.
- The CMF Patient & Caregiver Support Network provides a searchable, online database of support services for mesothelioma patients and their caregivers across Canada (as well as other asbestos-related diseases).
- Private, invite-only Facebook groups for mesothelioma patients, loved ones and bereaved to connect with one another, share experiences and seek support from others in similar situations.
Information on these two supports is available by clicking on the links in the navigation menu to the left.
