The CMF has a new service for our support groups, where members join a Zoom call and directly connect with the CMF and others affected by mesothelioma. These sessions are moderated by the newest member of our team, Robin Forbes, a social worker with the Mesothelioma program at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. She knows about mesothelioma compensation options and the need for emotional and practical support for people diagnosed with mesothelioma and their family members.

Our June CMF Mesothelioma Discussion group was on pain management with Dr. Camille Munro, a pain management specialist and a member of the CMF Scientific Advisory Committee and Assistant Professor and Clinician-Teacher with the Division of Palliative Medicine at the University of Ottawa. Dr. Munro's presentation to the live support group on palliative care and pain management has now been uploaded to the CMF website.

Are you a patient or a caregiver of a patient with mesothelioma? If yes, please watch for news to join us for upcoming sessions.  For confidentiality and privacy, Zoom invitations for discussion groups will only be sent to registrants for each session - register for the Fall session by emailing and include your connection to the disease.
