Veterans Assistance Overview
Military veterans, especially ones who served in the U.S. Navy, were unnecessarily exposed to asbestos during their service, placing them at risk for developing pleural mesothelioma. Learn more about how veterans were exposed and benefits that can help today.
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) offers some hope. It has a number of benefits for veterans who were exposed to asbestos during their service. The Veterans Department at The Pleural Mesothelioma Center is dedicated to ensuring that veterans receive all the VA benefits they deserve.
Our veterans department provides military veterans with resources they need to secure benefits from the VA. In addition to answering questions about asbestos-related cancer and these benefits, that is the department’s chief mission. Our staff is headed by retired Navy officers who have a working knowledge about how the VA renders its benefits decisions and how they best can help veterans get benefits. The VA is renowned for long, drawn-out processes. Our veterans department helps cut through that red tape.
The best news is that this service, and others that we provide to veterans and their families, is free. Among the benefits we fight for on behalf of veterans include Disability Compensation, Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC) and VA Health Care.
Eligibility for VA Benefits
A person who served in the active military service and who was discharged or released under conditions other than dishonorable is considered a veteran who may be eligible for VA health benefits and services.
Once the nature of a veteran’s discharge from military service is established, other eligibility requirements include:
- Length of military service
- Classified as a service-connected disability
- Income level
- Number of dependents
- Available VA resources
- Proof of a diagnosis caused by asbestos exposure
The key to filing a successful VA claim is convincing the VA that the majority, if not all, of a veteran’s asbestos exposure was a direct result of his or her service in the military. The veteran must provide documentation from an accredited physician stating that the diagnosis is asbestos-related and that the disease was caused by military service.

Sexual Assault Support Services
Call: (775) 221-7600. We are here for you 24/7/365.
What is Sexual Assault?
Sexual Assault is any unwanted, forced, or coerced sexual act. It includes inappropriate sexual contact or fondling, acquaintance rape, date rape, stranger rape, child sexual abuse, and incest. Sexual assault is not about sex, it is a crime of violence where sex is used as a weapon, motivated by the desire to have power and control over the victim.
Sexual assault violates not only a person’s body, but also their sense of safety and control over their life. NO ONE DESERVES TO BE SEXUALLY ASSAULTED!
What if you are assaulted?
If you are a victim of sexual assault, consider doing the following:
Go to a safe place.
Seek medical care immediately. You may not be aware of injuries you have received, and you should be tested for sexually transmitted diseases. Medical care is available at any hospital emergency room. If you are considering reporting the assault to law enforcement, call the 24-hour SASS line at (775) 221-7600 or 1 (800) 992-5757 for the support that you need.
Get tested for sexually transmitted diseases. The Washoe County Health Department or Planned Parenthood perform testing and you do not have to file a police report to receive medical treatment. Nevada law requires the county in which the crime occurred to pay for initial medical costs for victims of sexual assault.
Speak with a SASS team advocate. Discuss your options and receive referrals for additional services, ask the hospital to talk to an advocate or call (775) 221-7600.
Call a supportive person, a friend or relative, or call Crisis Call Center. Crisis Call Center is available 24/7/365 at (775) 784-8090 or 1 (800) 992-5757.
To report or not to report…
Reporting the sexual assault to law enforcement is the survivor’s choice. We encourage survivors to report the crime; however, a victim’s decision should always be respected and supported, whether or not they choose to file a police report.
If you are assaulted and you are considering filing a police report, please try to follow these guidelines to preserve evidence:
*DO NOT BATHE OR DOUCHE.
*DO NOT CHANGE YOUR CLOTHES.
*DO NOT BRUSH YOUR TEETH OR USE MOUTHWASH.
*DO NOT USE THE BATHROOM.
*DO NOT EAT OR DRINK ANYTHING.
*DO NOT APPLY ANY MEDICATION.
*DO NOT DISTURB OR CLEAN UP THE CRIME SCENE.
Even if you DO THESE THINGS you can ABSOLUTELY still get an exam! Please always contact us if you have any questions or doubts.
Forensic examinations for collecting physical evidence can be conducted up to seven (7) days after an assault has occurred. You can report the crime and have a forensic examination during this time period even if you have cleaned up and/or choose not to report the incident. Please call the 24-hour crisis line at 775-784-8090 or 1-800-992-5757 for more information.
Who are the victims of sexual assault?
Anyone can be a victim of sexual assault, regardless of age, race, socioeconomic status, cultural background, religion, marital status, physical or mental ability, gender, or sexual orientation. A person can be assaulted by their spouse.
1 of 4 girls and 1 of 6 boys will be assaulted before their 18th birthday.
1 of 6 women and 1 of 33 men will be assaulted in their lifetimes.
A Note To Survivors
You have been through a traumatic experience. It is important for you to know that no matter what the circumstances of the assault were, it was not your fault. Victims of sexual assault, child sexual abuse, and incest are not to blame. Only the perpetrator is at fault.
You may experience many different feelings and emotions after the assault. The trauma of an assault does not end when the act of violence is over. Each of us responds to crisis in our own way, and no reaction is “wrong” or “crazy”. Common feelings include fear, guilt, shame and anger. Some people will experience depression, flashbacks, anxiety, troubled sleeping and/or eating patterns, and problems re-establishing sexual relationships. Many survivors re-experience some of these feelings or problems months or years after the assault.
Your reactions are unique to you.
Others may tell you how you should feel, and when you should feel “better” or what you should do to help yourself, but you are an individual, and you are entitled to your own feelings and reactions.
It is important to allow your feelings to surface following the assault. Sexual Assault Support Services volunteers can help you access information on victims’ compensation programs; long term counseling and other services that may help you rebuild your life.

Sierra Nevada Cancer Center
In 2002, Dr. Jorge Perez opened Sierra Nevada Cancer Center in Carson City in order to provide area cancer patients with advanced cancer care close to home.
Recognizing that traveling to a big city to access cancer experts and facilities is stressful, expensive and exhausting, Dr. Perez built his clinics in underserved communities, including a cancer center in Fallon, one in Gardnerville, and most recently a Stateline cancer center.
We believe in treating the whole patient, not just the disease. We educate patients about their condition and their treatment options and work closely with their entire care team. We stay abreast of the latest innovations in cancer care and maintain a state-of-the art facility.
