Widower campaigns for greater asbestos awareness

Posted in: Asbestos Exposure Mesothelioma Wrongful & Accidental Death 

A widower from Wales has called for greater awareness of the dangers of exposure to asbestos after his wife died from mesothelioma, reports the BBC.

Eric Ward had worked as a fitter’s mate at a Welsh power station for over 20 years, where he was apparently exposed to asbestos fibres on a daily basis.

His wife Valerie contracted mesothelioma after years of washing his work overalls, which were contaminated with the deadly fibres. She started to experience breathing difficulties around four years ago, and was diagnosed with asbestos-related mesothelioma in 2010. She died shortly afterwards at the age of 78.

According to the BBC, the family was awarded compensation for Mrs Ward’s death, which they donated to the hospice that had cared for her after she became ill.
