Although mesothelioma, also known as asbestos cancer, is a rare disease, it is one of the most lethal forms of cancer ever diagnosed. Additionally, it’s one of the most difficult types of cancer to detect because of its long period of dormancy: a mesothelioma patient can live between 20 to 50 years before the first symptoms show up. When a patient does become symptomatic, doctors often lose precious treatment time because mesothelioma warning signs mimic symptoms of common respiratory ailments. In addition, it is also an aggressive type of cancer that can spread quickly from the affected body areas to other organs. These factors, when combined with the demographics of who is more susceptible to the disease, make mesothelioma especially deadly. If you or a loved one suffer from mesothelioma, asbestos-related lung cancer, or asbestosis, you may qualify for substantial compensation. Currently, there is over $30 billion in asbestos trust funds, awaiting those who’ve been diagnosed with an asbestos illness. We invite you to fill out our form today for a free Financial Compensation Packet, filled with information about top mesothelioma lawyers in your area, how to get paid in 90 days, how to file an asbestos trust fund claim, and much more. Statistics According to a 2009 report by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), 18,068 patients diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma died between 1999 and 2005. Though year-to-year figures may vary, the annual death rate of mesothelioma patients is an average of 14 per every million. When compared, this is still a small percentage of the entire population. Yet, its particular lethality and relative rarity make mesothelioma a disease with extremely low survival rates. Although survival rates in mesothelioma patients depend on a wide range of factors, a patient can expect an post-diagnosis survival time of between four months to a year and a half. Keep in mind, however, that there are always exceptions to this rule and each patient should talk to their physician about their own personal health and expectations. Generally, how long a patient lives after mesothelioma has been diagnosed depends on an array of variables such as age, gender, race, and overall health. For instance, if a patient is a male between 25 and 34 years of age and in good physical condition with no preexisting conditions, his chances of surviving longer than 18 months are promising. Patients such as these benefit from early detection and surgical treatment of the disease. Keep in mind, however, that this age group is one of the least affected by asbestos-related cancer. The average survival rates for older patients is bleaker. According to the American Cancer Society (ACC), even though 5-10% of patients diagnosed with mesothelioma can live for five years or more after the initial diagnosis, these individuals are usually young with cancers that can be surgically treated. Since the average mesothelioma patient tends to be a white male aged 60-70 who was heavily exposed to asbestos during his active work years, the cancer is already well-developed and can’t be treated with surgery. Older patients also may have debilitating health issues, such as cardiopulmonary diseases and hypertension, which help to reduce their lifespans. Patients in these two age brackets (65-74 and 75-84) have the highest death totals. From the years 1999 through 2005, 12,150 out of the 18,068 recorded mesothelioma deaths were happened to victims ages 65 through 84. Survival Rate Facts to Consider Generally speaking, it is typically difficult, if not impossible, to predict accurate life expectancy after a patient is diagnosed with mesothelioma. Along with each patient’s case being different from the next, the disease is still considered a new and a unique form of cancer, and averages based on the tumor-lymph node-metastasis (TNM) staging process are still difficult to evaluate at this point. However, studies suggest that a patient’s post-diagnosis life expectancy will depend on a combination of several factors: Latency: Unfortunately, mesothelioma has an extremely long latency period, typically up to 20 to 50 years after exposure. This makes it difficult to get an early detection, therefore, shortening survival rate. The sooner the disease is detected, the higher your life expectancy and survival rate. The Stage of the Disease After Diagnosis: Victims in Stage I or II of the disease have a much better survival rate than those who are diagnosed in later stages. Tumor Removal: Surgery is usually not an option as most cases of mesothelioma are discovered after the disease has advanced to its later stages. However, if the disease is caught early and the tumor can be surgically removed, survival rate is usually prolonged. Age: As aforementioned, age plays a huge role. The younger the patient, the better chance they have in surviving longer and increasing life expectancy. Yet, although rare, older patients in optimal physical health may has just as good of a chance as younger patients. Area of the Disease: Mesothelioma affects different regions of the body. The majority of mesothelioma cases affect the pleural area of the body, but there are instances in which the abdominal cavity and other body areas will be impacted by the disease. Since pleural mesothelioma is the easiest to treat, victims with this form of mesothelioma have a higher life expectancy. However, victims with epithelial mesothelioma have the highest survival rates of all forms of the disease. Additional Information for Patients to Consider Although the grim facts of survival rates of mesothelioma can be discouraging, keep in mind that the statistics do not reflect everyone’s situation. For example, an Australian victim named Paul Kraus has been living with mesothelioma after being diagnosed in 1997. This is just one of the several instances in which victims have went on to defy the odds and live much longer than the average life expectancy of a mesothelioma victim. Per the ACC, all victims should remember that current statistics are based on patients that have been treated many years ago. As science progresses, the life and expectancy and survival rate may improve for more victims as mesothelioma treatment options advance.

Rodaberputar.com-Cantik, cerdas, dan apa adanya; kamu pasti tidak asing dengan sosok di atas. Sebagai seorang YouTuber, blogger, dan selebgram, wajah perempuan berdarah Palembang ini memang sering malang-melintang di media sosial dan televisi. Bermula ‘hanya’ sebagai seorang mahasiswi Indonesia yang kuliah di Jerman, kini Gita adalah influencer yang tengah ramai diidolakan kawula muda. Perjalanan hidup dan caranya memandang kehidupan mungkin akan membuatmu terpelatuk dan berpikir,

Seperti yang diceritakan dalam bukunya yang berjudul Rentang Kisah, semasa SMA Gita nggak suka belajar. Buatnya, sekolah adalah tempat untuk bermain dengan teman-teman. Gita mulai panik akan masa depannya ketika tiba saatnya menghadapi ujian akhir. Jangankan tahu mau kuliah di mana, dia sendiri bingung passionnya apa.

Akhirnya Gita memutuskan mendaftar FSRD ITB dan harus belajar mati-matian hingga ia berhasil lolos. Meskipun pada akhirnya Gita memilih tawaran mendadak sang ibu untuk kuliah di Jerman, paling tidak Gita tahu bahwa seorang pemalas pun akan berhasil jika mau berusaha.

Menempuh kelas di Studienkolleg hingga berkuliah di Freie Universität Berlin, Jerman bukan hal yang mudah. Sempat menyesal karena jarang menyimak pelajaran semasa SMA, Gita menghabiskan hampir seluruh waktunya untuk belajar demi bisa bertahan di tengah ketatnya kultur pendidikan Jerman. Sekarang? Gita malah ketagihan untuk terus belajar. Ia sadar betapa pentingnya mencerdaskan diri agar bisa survive di dunia ini. Begini cuitan Gita tentang pendidikan di salah satu media sosialnya,

“Bukan cuma keberuntungan dan modal nekat yang bikin seseorang bisa terus naik standar hidupnya, tapi ilmu yang dimiliki juga akan sangat membantu seseorang untuk naik lebih tinggi dan lebih baik lagi,”ungkapnya.

Hidup sendirian di Jerman membawa banyak perubahan berarti. Manusia itu dinamis dan selalu berproses. Kalau Gita, masa transisinya menjadi lebih baik terjadi sejak hidup di Jerman. Semakin banyak berpikir dan merefleksi diri, semakin dia mampu mendewasakan diri. Seiring dengan pemahaman agama yang bertambah, cara pandang terhadap hidup pun berubah. Yang tadinya semua kemauan harus terwujud apapun caranya, Gita belajar untuk ikhlas.

“Serumit apapun masalah yang ada, begitu sadar hidup ini sudah diatur Tuhan, maka tidak ada alasan untuk mengeluh,”ujarnya,

Sebentuk pola pikir positif Gita yang lainnya bisa kamu temukan di video YouTube dan cuitan blognya. Daripada jadi netizen yang hobi nyinyir, lebih baik kepoin hal positif kan?.

Sebagai mahasiswi rantau yang bukan berasal dari keluarga berada, Gita pernah kelaparan karena kehabisan nasi. Pernah juga kena denda karena nggak bisa bayar tagihan kuliah dan rumah di Jerman. Terus apa? Gita bekerja! Ya, dia mengalami rasanya dicaci-maki oleh bos dan rekan kerja, bahkan dipecat ketika sedang sangat butuh uang.

“Gue muter otak gimana caranya bantuin Bokap dan Nyokap. Gimana caranya gue bisa berpenghasilan tapi tetep dapet pahala dari apa yang gue lakuin, biar niat gue tetep lurus,”ungkap Gita.

Dan, lahirlah Gita Savitri Devi yang dikenal sekarang. Yang mampu memanfaatkan internet dan media sosial seperti Blogger, YouTube, dan Instagram untuk menunjang biaya hidup sekaligus menebar semangat positif ke generasi muda Indonesia.

Kalau kamu perhatikan isi video dan tulisan-tulisan Gita di buku maupun blognya, kamu pasti menangkap pesonanya. Beberapa vlog di per-YouTube-an Indonesia kebanyakan berisi travelling dan ketawa-ketiwi, tapi Gita berkomitmen untuk memberikan konten yang lebih bermanfaat dan edukatif. Dengan begitu, ia bisa menularkan semangat positif pada para viewers vlognya (terutama generasi muda Indonesia).

Eh jangan salah, kamu gak akan bosan mendengar celotehan ataupun tulisannya. Gita memaparkan opininya dengan cara yang akrab dan mudah dicerna. Ia mampu menginspirasi orang lain tanpa kesan menggurui. Gayanya yang cuek-cuek santai dan visual yang adem dipandang juga menjadi daya tarik tersendiri. Gak heran kalau perempuan kelahiran 27 Juli 1992 ini punya banyak fans, ya!

Punya segudang kesibukan nggak bikin Gita keteteran. Waktu masih menggarap skripsi, dia harus bolak-balik melakukan penelitian, menulis buku, mencari konten, membuat dan mengedit video untuk di-upload 2 kali seminggu, photoshoot untuk endorsement, dan sesekali nge-blog. 24 jam cukup? Cukup dong, kalau kata Gita asalkan nggak menunda-nunda kerjaan, semua pasti beres sesuai waktunya. Time management is key.

Prestasi Gita? banyak. Salah satunya sebagai salah satu anggota YouTube’s Creator for Change dan bertemu banyak YouTuber inspiratif dari berbagai belahan dunia. Kebayang nggak, dari yang awalnya hanya upload video cover lagu lalu berkomitmen menjadi content creator, Gita akhirnya berkembang dan terkenal seperti sekarang. Berbagai tawaran endorsement, brand ambassador, sampai kesempatan menulis bukupun berdatangan.

Kamu merasa sudah berusaha banyak tapi masih gagal? Atau malah nggak merasa cukup layak untuk bermimpi? Simak kata-kata Gita berikut ini!

“I know how hard it is not able to afford some things in life. You feel limited, can’t do what you love, what you want. I know how it feels like. Jangan lupa kita punya Allah. Kalau niat kita lurus dan hati kita bersih, insha Allah diberi jalan. Karena Allah sudah menjanjikan, di setiap kesulitan pasti ada kemudahan.”paparnya,

Memang tidak ada batasan umur dalam berkarya, tua-muda semua bebas melakukannya. Tapi selagi masih muda, masa sih kita nggak mau memanfaatkan waktu yang ada? Stop mengurung diri di kamar dengan gadget di genggaman, apalagi ngepoin hal-hal kurang berfaedah. Pergunakan internet dengan bijak dan manfaatkanlah untuk memperbanyak ilmu dan menunjang skillmu.

Sebaik-baik manusia adalah yang bermanfaat bagi orang lain, maka teruslah membantu orang lain meski peranmu hanya sedikit. Kalau kata Gita sih begini:

Whatever that may come, you and I just need to do well, be nice to ourselves, to people around us. Because we are given only one chance. We only live once.

Jadi, sudah siap untuk menjadi generasi muda yang aktif dan produktif?. (*)
