Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation
The Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation (MARF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating Mesothelioma as a life-ending disease. They promote this goal by funding the highest quality and most promising research projects around the world, helping patients connect with national experts and obtain the most recent information on treatment options, and by advocating in Washington, D.C. for federal Mesothelioma research funding.
The work of MARF is funded by Mesothelioma patients, as well as their families. These individuals have invested generously in the search for a cure. In addition to patient funding, law firms, drug companies, and companies formerly involved with asbestos have invested in the organization as well. These various groups have all joined the common mission of finding a cure for this terrible disease.
Through their Patient Advocacy program, MARF offers personalized help to both victims of the disease as well as their family members. This helps with their goal of providing the most recent information to victims of the disease as well as their family. If an individual has more information available, they are more likely to fight the disease in an informed way. Knowing all of the available treatment options can help people fight the disease aggressively at the start.
Over the years, MARF has contributed more than $4 million to various research projects all devoted to finding a cure. The money that they have contributed stems from contributions made by patients, advocates, physicians, and advocates.
