Mesothelioma Explained

Mesothelioma Treatment

Cancer is a terrible disease that attacks millions and millions of people all over the world each and every single day. According to the World Health Organization, there have been 7.5 million deaths that can be linked to cancer in 2012 alone. Not only is cancer a burden on the individual but also their family and loved ones. In this article, we'll take a closer look at the cancer called Mesothelioma. This particular strain of cancer is caused by cells transforming into cancerous cells in the lining of the internal organs in the body called the Mesothelium.

Warning Signs

The first step in order to deal with Mesothelioma is by identifying rather or not you're actually stricken with this particular form of cancer. The most common symptoms associated with Mesothelioma are pain in the chest and difficulty breathing. Over time, these symptoms will worsen and the patient will also start to notice other symptoms.

- Rapid weight loss without any reason.
- Tumors can also cause a raspy or hoarse voice change.
- Sweating that can also persist into night sweats.

If you or a loved one have experienced any of these symptoms then it is essential to schedule a doctors appointment to get checked up. Cancer can be reversed through procedures like radiation, surgery, and medication given that the patient catches the cancer in time.

Mesothelioma Life Expectancy

One of the most important factors in determining life expectancy in a patient is how their support group treats them. Often times patients have lived past their life expectancy due to positive support both mentally and physically by their friends, family, and loved ones.

It's essential that the family or support group take the following steps in order to prolong life expectancy in mesothelioma patients.

- Make sure the patients are taking medications routinely and on time.
- Get plenty of exercise and healthy activities that promote healthy bodily function.
- Have fun, laugh, and promote an overall sense of well being when around the patient.
- Try to talk about the patients disease as little as possible.
- Change the diet to whole foods, lean meats, vegetables, and fruits.
- Treat the disease almost as if it were not there. A placebo affect may take place.


All in all, Mesothelioma Treatment can be a scary and daunting time in a person's life. However, with the proper care from the individual themselves, and their support group, Mesothelioma life expectancy can exceed any doctors expectations. Some individuals experience full remission simply due to the fact that their support base and daily regimen was in tip top shape and practiced every day.

November 11, 2011 Happy Veterans Day

November 10th we offered complimentary rooms to honor our Veterans and active Military Personel.  We were very pleased that we were able to fill all six of our rooms with our special guests from all over Oregon. They touched our hearts deeply.  We will be doing the same next year.

November 5th 2011

November 5th 22 members of Belles and Beaus of Jacksonville enjoyed and evening of Victorian tradition at the Bybee’s Historic Inn.   Belles and Beaus is an organization that promote history by dressing in vintage clothing and accessories while reviving the traditions of the 1800’s.  They pay attention to every detail including the clutches the ladies carried containing period appropriate items.  After a gourmet dinner catered by Chef William Prahl of De Javu in Jacksonville, the ladies retired to the Parlor  and the men remained in the dining room just as it was done in the Victorian era.  To finish off the evening everyone gathered in the parlor to play Victorian games.  It was truly magical to have our 1857 circa home filled with guests representing that period.
