Hi Andrea

My name is Jezebel and I have 2 children. My husband has incurable cancer. I know the disease is not the same but the children bit and the caring bit is the same. Just to say hello and I don't know about you but I sometimes find things so difficult even though to everyone else I seem a pillar of strength. I hide my fears and worries to make everyone else feel better.What is Mesothelioma? Intrigued!

Hi Jezebel,
Thanks for your e-mail. Mesothelioma is cancer on the outer lining of the lung. It comes from asbestosis. My mother was exposed to asbestos through my father. I agree with you in the fact that the care and the children are the same. I try to have as much strength as possible but it gets really hard sometimes. Please keep in touch with me and let me know how your doing. If you want you can e-mail me at tsao@dandy.net.
Talk to you soon
Andrea
