A cancer diagnosis causes emotional, physical, and monetary complications to more than just the patient. Young people involved need support as they learn to navigate the challenges that come with a diagnosis. Mesothelioma Hub developed the Mesothelioma Scholarship Initiative to assist students who are directly affected by mesothelioma or asbestos as well as all other students who shared their findings in this year’s program.
Mesothelioma Hub looks forward to next year’s program and will continue to find ways to support those whose lives are affected by mesothelioma and asbestos. The 2022-2023 scholarship application process will begin in the fall.
