CURE Media Group’s Understanding Mesothelioma Available on Amazon.com, Proceeds Benefit the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization

DALLAS (October 3, 2011) –To help educate mesothelioma patients and their families about the asbestos cancer, the national law firm of Baron and Budd is sponsoring the e-book release of CURE media group’s Understanding Mesothelioma. Previously available as a hard copy, Understanding Mesothelioma is now available for the Kindle, Nook and Sony e-reader for $9.99. Proceeds from the book’s sales will benefit the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO), a non-profit organization dedicated to preventing asbestos-related diseases through education, advocacy and community and, most importantly, to banning global use of asbestos.

The first in a series from CURE media group, Understanding Mesothelioma offers mesothelioma patients and their families an in-depth look into the causes of this deadly, but rare asbestos cancer, the latest treatment information, legal issues, caregiving, survivorship and other valuable resources for those dealing with a mesothelioma diagnosis. Most importantly, Understanding Mesothelioma continues CURE’s mission to translate complex medical information into understandable, consumer-friendly materials that inspire patients and caregivers.

"Electronic books are the future, so it only makes sense for us to offer this wonderful resource in the e-reader format," said Baron and Budd. "We are proud to help bring this information to a wider audience of readers in a more environmentally friendly format."

Baron and Budd has a history of giving back to the mesothelioma community. The firm was a cornerstone donor and executive advisory board member of the International Mesothelioma Program (IMP) at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston and has donated generously to the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) and the Lung Cancer Alliance. Russell Budd, Baron and Budd’s President and Managing Shareholder, is the only attorney who serves on the Foundation Board of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN).

The e-book Understanding Mesothelioma is now available on Amazon.com for the Kindle, BarnesandNoble.com for the Nook, through the iTunes store, and for the Sony e-reader. Find the book on Amazon here. Physical copies of the book are available at CURE’s website and the Baron and Budd website.
