Baron and Budd is honored to support researchers and other mesothelioma advocates. The firm was a cornerstone donor and Executive Advisory Board member of the International Mesothelioma Program (IMP) at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Founded by Dr. David Sugarbaker, the program is a collaboration between Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute to research cutting-edge treatments for mesothelioma patients.
CURE media group, the publishers of CURE magazine, is dedicated to providing understandable cancer information to patients and caregivers as they navigate their cancer journey. Understanding Mesothelioma is the first in a series of books that explore specific types of cancers. Because mesothelioma is rare, it can be difficult for patients and families to find the right medical information to face the cancer head-on.
Understanding Mesothelioma offers accessible information for patients and caregivers about mesothelioma treatment options, diagnosis, legal issues, finding a specialist and includes caregiver stories. The distribution of Understanding Mesothelioma is made possible by the generous donation of Baron and Budd.

Baron and Budd is a proud sponsor of ADAO’s efforts.
