About this Map

Mesothelioma is more than a statistic.

It’s easy to get caught up in the statistics, numbers and graphs and even maps like the one on this page, filled with dots, lines and bars intended to demonstrate the effects of asbestos.

However, it’s important to remember that mesothelioma affects real people. People who struggle every day with a disease that steals their breath and saps their strength. Mesothelioma also affects the families and friends who love them, who pray for them, who watch as they fight a mortal battle against this diease. Even the physicians and advocates and lawmakers who fight alongside them, for life, for a cure, for a complete and total ban on asbestos.

Our goal here is to share these stories, so that others may learn about this disease.

Everyone has a story to tell. Share your story today.
