Action Mesothelioma Day

Did you know that over 2,500 people die per year of Mesothelioma, one of the main lung cancers directly attributed to exposure to asbestos? It is not acceptable, and that’s why the Asbestos Alliance, formed by Asbestos support groups across the UK, organises ‘Action Mesothelioma Day’ on the first Friday of July every year.

Public buildings across the country will be lit up in blue across to mark this special day and raise awareness of this important issue.

Here at DAST we remember all those who have died or have been made ill by Mesothelioma, and we also recognise that Action Meso Day is a positive opportunity to bring families together for a common cause, whether that be fighting for justice, looking to the future for better diagnosis and treatment of Mesothelioma or campaigning for a World-Wide asbestos Ban!

Be Bold, Wear Blue!

This year, Action Mesothelioma day is Friday July 5th, and as part of our activities, DAST invites you to Be Bold, Wear Blue!

You’re also invited to send in a few words about what mesothelioma means to you.
