Order of Saint Lazarus awareness campaign in collaboration with the Mesothelioma Center July 2010
Throughout its years of operation, the Hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus has always strived hard to ensure that it aids and assists other non governmental agencies which also work in the hospice and palliative care of operations.
The Supreme Grand Priory has been in contact with the National Awareness Coordinator for the Mesothelioma Center so as to assist this organisation in increasing awareness for the services that they offer. Mesothelioma is a terminal disease and hospice and palliative care is an option for those with terminal malignant mesothelioma.
We are now offering a link from this site to their specialised site which offers more than 3,000 pages of content. It also features information on asbestos, mesothelioma, and other cancers that are caused by asbestos exposure (lung cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, etc). Unlike other sites, Asbestos.com has achieved the coveted HON code approval. The Health On the Net (HON) Foundation is a not-for-profit foundation that works to preserve the accuracy and trustworthiness of Web-based medical information. This site employs a full staff of writers dedicated to research and writing about asbestos exposure and the diseases that result from exposure to the toxic mineral. In addition, medical adviser and editor, Dr. Mauricio Salazar,M.D., who has worked in the field of cancer treatment for years, has personally reviewed, edited, and approved all medical information on the site in question.
