St. Ives Town Council are proud to support Action Mesothelioma Day #AMD2022
On Friday 1st July 2022 we will be lighting the medieval bridge blue in support of the national campaign, #GoBlueForMeso
, to raise awareness of mesothelioma, an asbestos related lung cancer.
A local resident, Rebecca Dunmore, asked if we could support this campaign. Unfortunately, her father, Errol Lee, was diagnosed with mesothelioma in March 2019 after exposure to asbestos during his working life as a carpenter. Following his diagnosis, he relocated to St. Ives to be close to his daughter and grandson. He sadly died in August 2020 from mesothelioma.
