It really began in the 1950s when aged 15 she met Ray who was to become her lifelong partner. He was an apprentice in the Royal Naval Dockyard in Chatham. They would meet during lunch breaks and later in the day. He would have on his clothes the fine invisible dust of asbestos. No one at that time warned them that this would in later life become a major issue. After their first year together Ray was called up for National Service.

#ActionMeso is a campaign that brings together the diverse mesothelioma community with a single voice. It is the first time that so many patient support groups and charities have joined forces to raise awareness of mesothelioma.
Our aim is also to get the rest of the mesothelioma community on board including patients, carers, healthcare & legal professionals together with the asbestos removal firms and the construction industry.
