When we started the Mesothelioma Circle mesothelioma blog in 2012, our main goal was to connect with mesothelioma patients and their families, to share information about the latest treatments, rejoice in the success stories, and provide comfort where we could. Over the past five years, we have grown from a mesothelioma blog to a support network that reaches thousands of mesothelioma families through our website, Facebook page, and Twitter feed. When we heard that Mesothelioma Circle had been recognized as one of the top mesothelioma blog websites, we took that as a sign that we are on the right track.
Creating a resource like a mesothelioma blog can be wrenching at times. Mesothelioma is a brutal form of cancer and we try not to shy away from that reality. But recent months have brought a growing stream of hopeful stories about new and potential mesothelioma treatments and that gives us great inspiration.
Mesothelioma Circle on Best Mesothelioma Blog List
On December 12, 2017, Feedspot.com included Mesothelioma Circle in its list of the Top 40 Mesothelioma Blogs and Websites for Mesothelioma Patients. Mesothelioma Circle placed 11th out of the 40 resources listed. We are very proud of our place on this list.
We appreciate this recognition not because it’s a feather in our cap but because it means we are succeeding in our mission to reach and help mesothelioma families.
Feedspot.com is an RSS aggregator (more on that below). The site searches for the best websites about different areas of interest and highlights these for its readers who might want to subscribe.
Among the other blogs highlighted by Feedspot was the mesothelioma blog written by Mavis Nye, a mesothelioma survivor who’s a rare mesothelioma patient in remission. We featured Mavis’ s encouraging story in a recent post on Mesothelioma Circle.
The Feedspot list isn’t the first time that Mesothelioma Circle has been recognized for its role in connecting mesothelioma patients, researchers, and families around the world. In 2015, the US Chamber of Commerce named Mesothelioma Circle<https://www.mesotheliomacircle.org/mesothelioma-circle-named-top-mesothelioma-resource-by-u-s-chamber-of-commerce/> as a top mesothelioma blog and resource, in part because of the network of social media connections we use to find and share information with mesothelioma patients.
What is an RSS Feed?
RSS is short for Rich Site Summary. The symbol for RSS, an orange square with two white half circles above a dot, indicates that a website or blog has an RSS feed. You can often subscribe to the RSS feed from a particular website by clicking on this icon.
RSS aggregators like Feedspot allow you to see all your RSS subscriptions in a single feed and read them together. If you like to stay on top of information on one topic or many topics from around the internet, viewing multiple RSS feeds in a single reader can save you time and frustration.
The Feedspot list is a good resource for mesothelioma patients. You can create a list of different websites that you want to follow and view them on Feedspot or another RSS reader. Whenever there is a new post in your favorite mesothelioma blog, you’ll be the first to know without having to check the website to see if there’s anything new.
If setting up your own RSS feed sounds too technical for you, you can use the Feedspot mesothelioma blog list as a source of new mesothelioma resources that you might want to explore. It’s useful to have a list of every top mesothelioma blog in one place.
Why a Mesothelioma Blog is Vital for Mesothelioma Families
The first thing every mesothelioma patient and their family has after a mesothelioma diagnosis is questions – a million questions. Your doctor can answer some of your questions, but more keep popping up. A mesothelioma blog can provide the answers you need when you have a nagging question in the middle of the night.
At Mesothelioma Circle, we are constantly on the lookout for the latest information about mesothelioma treatment so we can share it with you. We have reported on the developments in immunotherapy as well as genetic testing and identification that are bringing individualized medicine closer to reality. We have shared helpful tips for getting through the hard times, both as a mesothelioma patient and a caregiver. We recognize that both roles are often just as challenging.
Beyond our mesothelioma blog, Mesothelioma Circle provides vital information on a range of topics, from identifying mesothelioma symptoms to what you can expect during chemotherapy treatments. For anyone with a history of asbestos exposure, even if you don’t have a mesothelioma diagnosis, a mesothelioma blog like Mesothelioma Circle can give you vital information to help you stay on the lookout for the signs of mesothelioma and stay healthier for longer. We also added a clinical trial matching tool to help you find a mesothelioma clinical trial that could put you first in line for life-extending treatment.
As we continue to grow and expand our mesothelioma toolkit, we’d love to hear from you. Do you have questions about mesothelioma that you’d like answered? We’d love to do the research and share the answers to your questions.
What information is most helpful to you? Let us know so we can keep improving in our mission to serve you.
Support from Kazan Law Makes this Mesothelioma Blog Possible
No recognition of Mesothelioma Circle is complete if it doesn’t acknowledge the immense contribution of Kazan Law, which sponsors this mesothelioma blog and its content. Mesothelioma Circle is just one of the latest extensions of this law firm’s decades-long quest to serve mesothelioma patients.
Kazan Law was one of the first firms to take on the big corporations who recklessly exposed their workers to asbestos. Their pioneering lawsuits helped bring about a reduction in the use of industrial asbestos and the recognition that mesothelioma patients deserve compensation for the negligence that caused their illnesses.
In addition to supporting Mesothelioma Circle, the Kazan McClain Partners Foundation makes financial contributions to institutions and projects that support mesothelioma patients. Through their contributions, they aim to help researchers find more and better treatments for mesothelioma until there is a cure.
When researchers do find the cure, you know you’ll read about it on here, on Mesothelioma Circle.
