My name is Katherine Keys. Due to asbestos exposure, I have been fighting mesothelioma cancer for the past 9 years. My exposure came from doing years of wiring work for Texas Power and Lighting Company. At the age of 49 I was diagnosed with Stage 1 Pleural Mesothelioma and was told I had less than two years to live. But I was determined to stay positive and beat this cancer against all odds. My treatment included a major medical procedure that involved having my right lung and the lining of the lung removed. Soon after, I began several months of radiation therapy.
I am blessed to say that my fight paid off, and after nine years later I am still cancer free… But I know I did not face this battle alone. The doctors and staff at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and mesotheliomalawyercenter.org are miracle workers, and I am forever grateful for them. Their team of legal experts, caregivers and medical professionals looked after me, improving my quality of life, and gave me the courage to continue fighting. I am proud to call them my friends and they continue to stand by my side as I fight mesothelioma.
I feel it is my duty to give back, and to let people with diseases that are a result of asbestos exposure realize that they are not alone and that there is plenty of help available. I would encourage the alternative medicine community and those in need of assistance to contact mesotheliomalawyercenter.org
Thanks for all your time and support in advance. I look forward to hearing back from you and hopefully having a chance to chat some more.
