The June 2017 Cancer Council Australia edition of Understanding Mesothelioma is aimed at all sufferers of malignant mesothelioma – in particular pleural and peritoneal mesothelioma, the two main primary forms of malignant mesothelioma.
A really handy reference for any newly diagnosed sufferer of malignant mesothelioma of any type. This information booklet was written in Australia, for Australians, after consultation with sufferers of mesothelioma, their carers and family members, and also leaders in the support, medical and legal fields. It was written with the everyday person in mind to help guide those involved through the mesothelioma journey. The Bernie Banton Foundation Support Co-ordinator, Rod Smith was a contributor to both the original 2011 mesothelioma booklet and this edition, as well as to the peritoneal mesothelioma fact sheet referenced below.
