Mesothelioma - I've shared your mining site, via Facebook

Good Afternoon,
I wanted to reach out to you because I commonly visit your site for information on mining, and truly value what your site has to offer. In fact, I have shared your site to my Facebook account to alert my friends with similar interests, who might find value in your resources. Please keep up the great work!

My grandfather was a World War II veteran, who lived an extremely fulfilled life. He was a true American hero, and always made sure that his family was well cared for. However, my grandfather was unable to receive the benefits and correct treatment for the health issues that he faced. I have come to find out this has been the case for many veterans living today.

In his honor, I wanted to reach out with you and see if you could help me share a resource with your audience. Could you share on your website or facebook page? The short questionnaire asks viewers questions to see if they are entitled to compensation. I really want veterans who truly need medical assistance, like my grandfather, to seek help through resources like these.

Please let me know if you can help. Again, thanks for maintaining such a useful site!

Over 30 Billion dollars has been set aside by companies that knowingly exposed their employees to products that contained Asbestos. I hope that you are willing to team up with my organization again to help veterans get the best medical treatments available, and provide financial aid to their family members during this difficult time. Please contact me if you have any questions, and I provided an example of our link information below. - 30 Billion dollars has been set aside to help victims and their families through Asbestos and Mesothelioma trust funds.

A Rare Cancer
That Develops In The Lungs
- Asbestos -

My name is Nicholas Hare, and I am the Public Awareness Director for While I was browsing through a number of health and mining sites, I came across your website and was very impressed by the information you have listed.

Pleural mesothelioma is the most common type of mesothelioma, a rare cancer that develops in the lungs. It is almost solely caused by exposure to asbestos, which was used in everything in children’s toys, house-hold insulation, and naval carriers. Our website has the most up to date and comprehensive information about Pleural Mesothelioma on the web today.  With information ranging from a complete list of symptoms, to treatment options, and steps to take after a diagnosis.

I noticed that you already had some other mining related resources listed on your resources page at and figured you might be interested in including a link to our site as well. Please let me know if you are interested - I'm available by e-mail. With your help, we can educate the public about the dangers of asbestos and hopefully save some lives. 

Thanks again!

Best Regards,

Nicholas Hare

Hi Fionn Taylor

My name is Roberta J. Walters and I am a cancer information coordinator for Mesothelioma Web. I recently came across the 'In Memory of Philip Healey' website and wanted to thank you for making this information available. I thought you might be interested in providing additional information to your site visitors.

Our site, Mesothelioma Web, has been one of the most comprehensive sites on asbestos and mesothelioma for over ten years, providing information and support to those who have been exposed to asbestos. Mesothelioma Web has achieved HON (Health On the Net) code approval; HON is a non-profit organization whose mission is to guide people to accurate medical information and expertise online and thereby to contribute to improved health care through patient empowerment and better informed health professionals.

The Resources page looks like the most effective place to put a link for those who have been affected by asbestos disease. The most informative page to link to would be the page answering many of the standard questions on mesothelioma:- if you would like, I can also write up some specific content for your site that might more clearly point to other content we offer on the topic; just let me know and I will get that done. I can be reached at

Thanks again for helping those who need medical information. Please let me know of any way I can assist.
