Mesothelioma Cancer

Mesothelioma, what is it and how can it impact our lives? Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that is caused by asbestos. Asbestos is a material with very fine particles that enter the lungs and can not be expelled. Because these particles fan not be expelled they metastasize and eventually turn into cancer. As far as I know there is no treatment for this type of cancer. There is not too much to worry about anymore when it comes to asbestos because most of it has been done away with. The majority of it was used in naval war ships back during the wars. There was some of it used in houses as well because it was a great fire retardant. As with all cancers mesothelioma cancer is just as saddening because of the pain it causes to individuals and also their families.

Although, some doctors give some patients a time period in which their mesothelioma cancer will eventually take them. Some of those diagnoses are a bit inaccurate since people have lived well beyond the prognosis that they were given. Some people continue to interact and even continue working until they finally succumb to fatal cancer. So just because the doctors say one thing does not always mean that it is accurate. You should however be prepared if they are correct, but also be prepared if they are not.

So, mesothelioma is cancer caused by asbestos and there is no cure. It affects our lives in two ways. First, if you are the person that has it then it is going to end your life probably sooner than you had hopped. Second, if you are a family member of the mesothelioma survivor you will eventually have to watch as they begin to decline and eventually die. This will be hard and very painful. No, matter how difficult it is always keep in mind that your positive attitude in the face defeat will be a great help to them.

All in one park

Here in Dallas Fort Worth, where we live. There is a lot of amusement park entertainment you can visit to keep your children busy this summer.  As a mother of three active kids. I love to visit places where my kids can enjoy and learn new things. Since my kids love being outdoors, going to the different park is always in our top list.  In the summer, going to the waterpark is our past time. Just recently, we found a new park in our area, not too far from where we live.  The name of the park is Clayton W. Chandler Park which is located in Mansfield, TX.  My kids love this park because it has splash pad which runs from 10 am to 8pm in the summer for free! Their playground area has a mini obstacle which is great for kids ages 3-10. If you have a teenager who loves sports, they have 2 basketball half court, sand volleyball, tennis court, baseball field, skateboard plaza, 1/4 mile walking trail with fitness stations and a half-acre pond stocked for fishing.
