You can read about our story here..
November 2004 started in the usual way with the whole family suffering from coughs and colds. However December and then January came and went and we had all recovered, except Dad.

Mum spent the whole of January nagging him to see the doctor and finally at the beginning of February 2005, an appointment was made.

The doctor confirmed there was fluid on Dad’s lung but instead of the usual prescription for antibiotics that we were all expecting, his lung was drained and we were then given the devastating news that he’d been diagnosed with mesothelioma.
