  1. Hi Sarcoma Support ,

    My name is Jacqueline Salinas and I'm a member of the Public Outreach Department for the Mesothelioma Center ( 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
