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 Gregory, as shared by his wife Kathleen, 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? 

It took my husband, companion and best friend away from me. My life has been changed forever. And every time I see another persons life gone it breaks my heart and makes me angry.
