Mesothelioma can spread in the simplest ways…

Wife is diagnosed with mesothelioma as well after her husband was diagnosed.

It is unfortunate that asbestos has killed many people’s spouses; however, it’s worse when asbestos takes the lives of both a husband and wife.

One of the few touching mesothelioma stories I have heard involves a man who was renovating his farm. He was constantly exposed to many asbestos products. Whenever he came home, his wife would always hug him, and in doing so, unknowingly exposed herself to lethal asbestos fibers.

Months later, both husband and wife were diagnosed with one of the most lethal forms of cancer: mesothelioma.
