Upon getting more information about this rare cancer and the fact that Ms. James herself is a rare Mesothelioma cancer survivor, I didn’t hesitate to write this blog post.

There is a website dedicated to awareness of this type of cancer and I must say that the people behind the website have given internet readers a good source about Mesothelioma. has everything you need to know.

And if reading the website alone is not enough, there’s no one more qualified to talk to about it than Ms. James herself. She was diagnosed with this cancer at age 36 when her daughter was just a few weeks old. Fast forward to 8 years, here’s Ms. James and her daughter, Lily, today:
