Review of 2015 as we start the New Year!

All in all 2015 has been a brilliant year for us!  Paul had 4 stable results at Papworth, we raised awareness and funds in various ways and for various organisations and we had lots of great family times and holidays.

We started the year on the front of the Cambridge News helping to raise awareness and funds for Mesothelioma with the Meso 100 Winter Walk Campaign.  We are keen to raise awareness of asbestos and mesothelioma so this started the year off nicely.

In June we appeared on the BBC2 Victoria Derbyshire programme on a section about Asbestos in Schools.  We were very pleased with the piece that was aired.  We had a lovely day filming with them with a cameraman, presenter and producer coming to our house.

We also appeared on the patient DVD which the Papworth Mesothelioma Support Group produced.  It is now given out to all new patients at Papworth and at some other hospitals.  Some of the interviews with us have also been used on the Mesothelioma UK's own DVD and on their website.

We made the most of this year with various holidays and days out with our son.  He started school in September so now our holidays will mostly have to be in the school holiday time.

We can only hope that 2016 will be as kind!

Happy New Year xx
