Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Connecticut woman survives asbestos-related cancer

A woman from Stonington, Connecticut who had mesothelioma said that she has been free of the asbestos-related cancer for almost a year and a half, reported on September 26.

Runner and tennis enthusiast, Lisa Rolfe, learned that she had mesothelioma two years ago after experiencing chronic breathing difficulties and pain in the left side of her back. The mother of two says she must have been exposed to asbestos as a child while washing her father’s work clothes covered in asbestos dusts. Rolfe underwent chemotherapy and aggressive surgery to extract the tumors in her lung. Rolfe said that she has been cancer free for 17 months. Lisa and her family celebrated her battle by getting a tattoo with a message “Run to the roar.”
