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 Robert, shared by his wife Carol, who is 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? (Shared by his wife, Carol, unedited)
It took me years to find the perfect person. A man who understood a strong woman and was willing to be a partner. He passed away six months before retirement.
My comment to those companies and government officials is this:
YOU COULD HAVE PREVENTED HIS DEATH!
