" I am filling this out for my father who has worked at Wabash Alloys. He is retired now but he did work there when he tested positive for Asbestos but never filled out any papers or anything. Dad is now having a hard time breathing and is on medicine that he has to take to help. The doctors said his lungs are gone. I have told dad he should be getting compensation for this but Dad knows very little about what to do. What can he do to get the right papers and things filled out to get the help he needs? It is hard for him to take care of his bill and the doctor said it is only going to get worse. " - Thomas W, IN

" I am a clinical social worker working with a woman who recently diagnosed with Mesothelioma in September.  My client is 50 years old and does not know when or where she may have been exposed to Asbestos.  She has stage IV Mesothelioma and will begin chemotherapy next week.  She is married and has a daughter.  I would like to speak with an attorney to discuss the options and resources available to her before I present her with the possibility of a lawsuit.  I would appreciate an attorney calling me to discuss this case.  From my minimal research, it seems that my client will die within one year or
sooner.  I feel very compelled to do something to help her and I would like to speak with someone from your office soon.  Thanks, Amy Morris, MSW. " - Amy C.   VA

" This is for my father who is still living but his quality of life for the past 10 years or so have been terrible. Unfortunately he has been working. If you can call it that, with a company recommended attorney and has gotten very little. For some reason, he would receive a check now and then over a period of a couple of years and to my knowledge, none over a thousand, others a hundred here maybe two or three other times. It's been a joke really, so I'm hoping that before he dies, he will be able to see something more for all he's gone through He is in the hospital now with advanced stages of COPD due to his exposure to asbestos while working at a steel plant in Huntington WVa . I don't think Dad's gotten any money for a year or two...it's as if they are waiting for him to die. Is there anything you can do? Thanks for listening. " - Carolyn F, MD

" I was diagnosed with Mesothelioma on May, 5, 2004. I have worked for over 25 years at a paint factory in a Chicago suburb. I felt a lot of pain in my chest this past January and had an x-ray to determine if anything was wrong. The x-ray showed nothing. I felt progressively worse and my breathing was labored so I had another x-ray in late April. This one showed a massive amount of fluid in my left chest cavity. I was told to go to emergency to have it treated. They removed about 1 liter of fluid from my left side but would not take all the fluid. I then sent to another specialist who took out the rest of the fluid (another liter)and conducted a biopsy of the tissue around the lining of my left lung. The result of the biopsy was that the entire bottom half of my left lung had Mesothelioma . They used a procedure called a "talc" to re-attach the top of my left lung and re-inflate it, but nothing could be done to re-inflate the bottom due to the scar tissue from the Mesothelioma . I would like to talk to a lawyer with offices in the Northwest suburbs about this situation. " - George R, Des Plaines , IL

" My 79 year old father was diagnosed with Pleural Mesothelioma on March 22, 2004.  A biopsy, catscan , xray , and blood work were performed. The Cancer is inoperable as it has totally covered his left lung and penetrated into his lung.  He worked for the Navy Ship yard, was in the Navy for the Korean war, and worked a couple more years in the Navy shipyard when he got out of the Navy.  We also lived in a house for approx. 22 years that had blown in insulation that I believe also is a source of asbestos.  He has had 5 radiation treatments and now is waiting for 3 weeks before they take another chest xray to see if that has done anything.  Please contact me via email as that is the best way to contact me.
