  1. Hi Sarcoma Support ,

    My name is Jacqueline Salinas and I'm a member of the Public Outreach Department for the Mesothelioma Center (Asbestos.com). While I was browsing through a number of health and cancer sites I came across your website and was very impressed by the information you have listed. Mesothelioma is a rare cancer that affects areas surrounding the lungs, heart, and abdominal area.

    I'm writing you because I thought you may be interested in including us as a resource on your page at sarcoma-support-south.org.uk/links/.

    Please take a look at our website Asbestos.com, and let me know what you think or if you have any questions. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing back from you.

    Best regards,
    Jacqueline Salinas
