A widow in the UK has started up a support group in order to try and help and assist victims of asbestos related diseases and their families. Gill Willcocks, from Crewe, lost her husband Dave to the asbestos related cancer mesothelioma last year.

The group will be called the Dave Willcocks Asbestos Victim Support Group. She said that she made a promise while caring for her sick husband that she would help other people to get information, support, and advice about asbestos dangers and diseases.

She stated: “While caring for Dave I decided that I would start a support group for asbestos victims in my area so I can share my experience. My aim is help other people to get information they need to help them through this most distressing time.

She added: “I felt it was poignant to announce my intentions on the day of Dave’s inquest to bring home to people how asbestos can destroy the lives of families across the UK.”
