Virgil Anderson, a construction worker from West Virginia, was recently diagnosed with mesothelioma, a cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. Virgil worked in demolition work and excavating since high school. This required the physical tear out, and hands on removal of asbestos containing insulation in walls, ceiling, attics and heating and cooling systems. To remove this required saws and sledge hammers all of which sent the asbestos fibers flying into the air. Since, his diagnosis, he has become extremely limited in his activities. For someone like Virgil who suffers from a debilitating lung disease, the idea of 3d printed lungs in the near future is very exciting.
