The Mesothelioma Center

Teamsters are the most diverse labour union in North America, so naturally many of the members have been exposed to asbestos, a material commonly used for insulation in buildings, ships, and equipment. This puts many workers at risk of developing mesothelioma, a rare cancer caused by asbestos exposure that can take 20-50 years to develop. Those occupations that are at risk of developing mesothelioma include warehouse workers, construction workers and many more.

Our website features extensive information on asbestos and we work 1-on-1 with individuals to help them find local doctors, treatment centers and support groups all at no cost.

Please take a look at some of the great information we have at

There is also a hyper link that connects directly to their website under the page, Helpful Links.
