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 Steven, as shared by his daughter Deana, 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? My dad was murder by the weapon of asbestos by the hands and authority of greed. He will no longer be able to enjoy all the things he loved to do with his family. Camp, fish, sports games, card games, board games, cornhole, but most important his presence is missed for his guidance and wisdom.
