I was contacted yesterday by a lovely woman called Heather, wanting desperately to share information about a cancer called mesothelioma. Cancer Research UK state that mesothelioma “is a type of cancer that can develop in the tissues covering the lungs or the abdomen. It is a cancer of mesothelial cells. These cells cover the outer surface of most of our internal body organs, forming a lining that is called the mesothelium.” Alas, the prognosis is rather terrible for the disease with most sufferers not expecting to live for more than a year or two.
Today is Mesothelioma Awareness Day and Heather has asked me to share her page with you. Please take the time to read her page http://www.mesothelioma.com/heather/awareness/#.UkSPhYZwp8E, share it and help to spread the word about this condition.
Many thanks everyone.
