We support people affected by Mesothelioma to improve experiences and outcomes

Story

First, I want to thank you all for supporting me. I want to raise money for better research into the treatment and prevention of Mesothelioma. It  is a deadly cancer caused by breathing in asbestos dust. There’s no cure, over the next 30 years 60,000 people will die from mesothelioma – unless new treatments are found.

My lovely mum was recently diagnosed with Pleural Mesothelioma as a result of exposure to asbestos when she was a primary teacher in the 70s. The British Lung Foundation believe unless a cure is found we will see thousands of deaths of ex teaching staff who were exposed to asbestos in the 60s, 70s and 80s. I want as few families as possible to go through the death of a loved one.

I promised my mum that I would shave my head in solidarity when she begins chemotherapy, I would like to use the occasion to do my bit toward supporting the excellent work of Mesothelioma UK. If we raise over £150 there will be pictures!
