We have been touched by asbestos in individual ways, yet we are joined together by a bond of community. As a testament to the strength of our global family, the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) is highlighting the courageous stories of our members with the “Share Your Story” feature on our website.

This week, we would like to honor the story of Marisol, as shared by Viviana, who is a part of our ADAO family. We encourage you to submit your personal stories by clicking here and following the simple instructions on the page. In sharing, comes healing. Remember, you are not alone.

How has asbestos changed your life? 

is terrible to look like a being you love day to day struggle against this horrible cancer and the worst that not even the doctors can give hope of life when we do not have the financial means to pay for treatment when our country ” Mexico ” We close the doors of several foundations for this rare cancer.
