The Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation (MARF) is a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to eradicate mesothelioma as a life-ending disease. Malignant mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer in which cancer cells invade the linings of the chest or abdomen. Most people who have it have worked on jobs where they inhaled asbestos. The Meso Foundation solicits and rigorously reviews applications, and then awards significant grants, for research on the prevention, early detection, and treatment of mesothelioma. Through its web site and literature, its direct communications, and its volunteer Family Advocacy Board, the Foundation provides patients, family members and physicians with hope, encouragement, and information. In addition, the Foundation works to enhance awareness of this disease and to encourage federal funding for research.
