We Mesothelioma Warriors have been marking the day, 3 years ago yesterday, that we said good night to our Debbie. We helped her, now grown up young son Kierran to get through the day with smiles as we put on pictures on his wall of us raising a glass to her. It makes for a very sociable day and helped him through.
From all around the world people joined us on Face Book.and we were united. even some that didn’t have Meso 3 years ago, joined in as that is what we do best. raising each other up patients and carers alike.
So many pictures, but these were the ones I put on and remembered her all day and all the things we did together and on face book. All the secret messages with all the Mesowarriors every evening. i still have them all I can’t delete such precious messages and messages of when someone had up set her and all the pain and suffering she went through in her own fight with Meso and how we helped each other through and other warriors to many to name. We loved them all.
July the 1 st is a special day where we will have Action Mesothelioma Day where Doves will be released around the Country. Where we will raise money for research to find that cure for our disease. We will find it as patients
