At survivingmesothelioma.com we have been documenting mesothelioma life expectancy for over 12 years. We list the doctors and actual survival rates of many of the mesothelioma treatments used in hospitals across the U.S. and the world. You can see the actual life expectancy for patients who used different treatments.
We also document individual patients who have beaten the odds and outlived their life expectancy by 10, 15, or even 20 years – survivors like Paul Kraus. Paul was diagnosed in July 1997 and today he is the longest living mesothelioma survivor in the world.
He wrote a book on how he beat the odds on typical mesothelioma life expectancy. He wanted to help and inspire other patients to realize that mesothelioma does not always have to be a death sentence. His book has been read by over ten thousand patients or their loved ones and is considered the best-selling mesothelioma book in the world.
