Hello Friends of the USS Triton,
After browsing your USS Triton site, I thought would pass along some information that the visitors of your website might find pertinent. Your site is very clean and organized. I like the multiple pictures you have of the USS Triton and the crew. With that being said, my name is Rachel Jones and I am the Communications Director for the Mesothelioma Cancer Network. I have an excellent resource for you to take a look at today. The Mesothelioma Cancer Network is an extensive database of information and resources for patients and their families to better understand the symptoms of Mesothelioma and the various aspects of diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment.
Since your site is dedicated to submarines, I feel the information on my site will be of use. Submarines are a blessing and curse to the ones who are connected with them. On the one hand, they kept out of sight of the enemy but on the other; sailors are defenseless against threats that may be lurking inside the ship itself. Many just consider this to be a “price you pay” scenario. Since asbestos was heavily used in the process of building, the crew members and builders were literally enclosed with asbestos. Since safety equipment was not given to guard against the dangerous fibers, they were ingested and would later develop into cancer.
To keep you and your fellow submariners safe, I would suggest mentioning Mesothelioma Survival Rates, on your webpage. The sharing of this page will help raise awareness of asbestos exposure and increase the survival rate of victims. Please let me know if this information exchange is of interest to you. I look forward to your response!
Have a good one,
