Tens of thousands of Philippine veterans who served with the US Navy were exposed to Asbestos, it was announced today, by Veteran Helping Veteran, President, Ken Smith.

We think that veterans from the Philippines were exposed to asbestos and have the same rates of mesothelioma as other veterans in the US Navy, said Smith.  We have set up a new web site Http://www.mesothliome.ph and request that any former navy veteran, or family member of a veteran who has been diagnosed with this cancer, contact us so we can begin to help.

Veteran Helping Veteran was established to help veterans who were exposed to toxic substances while in the serive and we want to ensure that the veterans of the Philippines are not left behind.  They served with pride and honor, and like thier American counterparts, were exposed to asbestos.

Mesothelioma is a cancer that is caused by exposure to Asbestos. 

We are requesting that veterans and family members of veterans contact us immediately to gain some help and support during this difficult time.

We have a world wide toll free 800 number.  800.935.9941  with the US as the country code.  One of our intake counselors can assist you and your family.
