Action Mesothelioma Day

Each year Derbyshire Asbestos Support Team is instrumental in organising Action Mesothelioma Day.  This is an opportunity for anyone to reflect and celebrate the lives of those affected by this asbestos cancer.  As usual, the 2014 AMD will take place at Leicester Cathedral.

The date of the event is Friday 4th July.  There will be a cathedral service of Reflection and Hope commencing at 3.30pm.  DAST’s Joanne Gordon is on the list of speakers, along with:
·        Lady Jennifer Gretton
·        Professor Dean Fennell
·        Dr Mick Peake - Consultant in Respiratory Medicine
·        Alastair Ault - Patient
·        Jill Lemon – Mesothelioma UK

After the service there will be a dove release and then an afternoon tea, giving people the opportunity to meet and share thoughts and experiences.  You can also sponsor a message on one of our dove shaped cards.

If you would like to attend the day, or sponsor a message, then please contact Joanne at

Message cards are hung on these trees for everyone to read and reflect.
