A huge thank you to all those that have followed me and have had faith in me. We have met so many wonderful people and Ray and I have enjoyed speaking to so many. We have loved giving our Presentations even though we were never used to being up on a stage before my illness, but Mesothelioma is a disease from Asbestos and I was so angry when diagnosed to find out Governments could have solved this so many years ago as they found Asbestos was killing people.
I now not only talk about Mesothelioma but about HSE and my wish is to keep young people safe from this terrible Lung disease that seems to appear just as your plans to retire and enjoy freedom from work.
I feel we should all have a mask on as everyday dust gets into our Lungs and damages. Just be aware and keep safe.
So Have a great Christmas and a wonderful Happy Healthy New Year xx
