Being diagnosed with mesothelioma or another asbestos disease such as asbestosis or diffuse pleural fibrosis can be overwhelming.
It is often accompanied by a sense of loneliness and uncertainty as to what the future holds. It is for this reason we are delighted to support Reflections Through Reality, a not for profit charity aimed at increasing awareness about the dangers of asbestos.
Reflections was established by the late Barry Knowles, a mesothelioma sufferer in 2015 who notice a gap in asbestos disease support.
Since his passing his daughter, Jo Morris has taken over his work with the support of a diverse board aimed at ensuring Reflections reaches those who most need their resources most.
Recently Reflections launched their new website (www.reflections.org.au) which provides resources on the different asbestos diseases, treatments as well as support for sufferers, carers and family and legal advice. Perhaps one of the most important features on the website is how to access support from Lizz Clarke, their Support Coordinator. Lizz is a registered nurse with lived mesothelioma experience having cared for her late husband, Colin. Lizz joined the team at Reflections nearly 12 months ago and since this time has brought comfort and support to countless sufferers and their families.
We are proud to support Reflections and thank them for the support they provide asbestos disease sufferers.
If you believe you have been exposed to dust, and would like obligation free advice on your compensation entitlements, please do not hesitate to contact us on 08 9325 0900.
