A St. Louis- area resident, Brenda Ward became a client of Simmons Hanly Conroy after being diagnosed with peritoneal mesothelioma.
Brenda had been a victim of take-home asbestos exposure as a child, meaning her father unknowingly brought asbestos fibers home on his work clothes. Later in life, she was again exposed to take-home asbestos exposure through her ex-husband, a mechanic.
In 2004, after experiencing symptoms of swelling in her abdomen and trouble breathing, Brenda consulted a doctor. A CT scan revealed a dark mass on her abdomen, and the doctor told her she may have peritoneal mesothelioma, a rare asbestos cancer of the abdomen.
Brenda had never heard of peritoneal mesothelioma before her diagnosis. After a period of shock and devastation, she began to research asbestos cancer and resolved to face her disease head on. She found a mesothelioma specialist who was able to help her combat the disease with a treatment plan including multiple surgeries and chemotherapy.
Through Brenda’s mesothelioma stories, it quickly becomes apparent that her faith, family and positive attitude have pushed her to survive and make the most of her life. After experiencing multiple difficult surgeries and treatment plans, Brenda stresses to other mesothelioma victims the importance of finding a qualified specialist.
