Action Mesothelioma Day 6th July

On the first Friday of July (6th) you will find us in the National Waterfront Museum, Swansea with Mesothelioma UK ,as it is the annual national Action Mesothelioma Day.  We will be reflecting on the past when many  inhaled asbestos fibres and went on to develop a rare form of cancer -mesothelioma.  Each year in the Wales we see the numbers of those with mesothelioma still being diagnosed, the symptoms of this illness can manifest themselves 30 – 40 years on from initial exposure. There is no cure for this cancer but we need to ensure that research and clinical trials are ongoing ,maintaining our glimmer of hope for the future.

Asbestos fibres are  still present in many public buildings and in old domestic properties, the use of asbestos was not banned in the UK until 1999 and despite health warnings workers are still taking risks.

Take a moment on this day Friday 6th July to join with us to remember those lost to mesothelioma and join hands with those still living with  this cancer to give them hope for a cure.

There will be a symbolic flying of two doves, reflection and hope, at around 4.00pm, following presentations and light refreshments, we start at 1.30pm.

Do call Jo on Tel: 01495 272 479 or email enquiries@a-a-s-c.org.uk should you wish to attend.
