A woman from the UK has recently spoken out about how she watched her late husband struggle to cope with the asbestos cancer mesothelioma, which is a disease that is caused by exposure to asbestos dust and fibers, and which she said finally took the life of her husband.

Ursula Blewden said that her late husband Frederick used to serve as a soldier for the army, and this is where he was exposed to the potentially deadly substance asbestos, which eventually resulted in him contracting malignant mesothelioma.

Mr Blewden is said to have worked as an engineer for Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers from 1941 to 1960, where the exposure is said to have occurred. His widow said: ‘We were just three days from our diamond wedding anniversary when he died. I am very sad he is not here still.’

She added: ‘He lost six stone in seven months. It was so quick. He went from 11 stone to just five stone and he couldn’t support his own weight. He had been very healthy before that. He collapsed on July 14 just outside our bedroom.’
