According to a representative: "The primary victims of asbestos exposure and mesothelioma include veterans, emergency personnel, firemen, mechanics, and even homeowners. By providing a live chat option (the only mesothelioma/asbestos website that offers a live chat 24/7), Q & A sessions, survivor blog posts, and an annual $10,000 scholarship, the website strives to have an impact on the community. Mesothelioma Help has fostered relationships with organizations across the globe."
