From our point of view as care providers and researchers, the minuscule fraction of money allocated to funding research for this rare disease is disheartening. Some law firms have acknowledged this funding gap and have supported research in the field. However, this philanthropy must be provided with no strings attached, without the expectation of getting legal referrals in return.
Instead of criticizing the donations by attorneys to research, the focus should instead be placed on creating an appropriate system to increase research funding. Imagine if even 1% of the $18 billion in trust funds used for asbestos litigation could go to research.
The work of the Foundation is funded by meso patients and their families who have invested generously in the search for a cure, as well as law firms, drug companies, and companies formerly involved with asbestos, all of whom have joined in the common mission of curing the disease.
