A Diary Of A Mesowarrior Living With #mesothelioma #asbestos -The story behind our BBC1 Interview






Yesterday the BBC 1 aired a video that Ray and I along with LASAG The Kent support group meet at Seven Oaks.

First we went to David and Julia White to meet up with BBC1 reporter Ed Cooke of BBC South East Today

We all go to LASAG Support but I go to the Canterbury one. David and I came together when he was first Diagnosed and he found me on Social Media where I bought him into the mesowarrior world.

Lost of message have passed between us as he went through surgery etc.

I jumped at being asked to film with David as any awareness is brilliant.

So that why I have found myself knocking at Davids door.

We fimed there and then we all travelled to the Bat and Ball Railway Station. Yes that is the right name







What a lovely function room.

Ray and I shared our story which of coarse the mesowarriors there know about as it is their story as well

Asbestos and the damage it causes us




It was a great afternoon and we said goodbye but we will keep in touch
