Lou is going to Washington for the annual ADAO Conference in March 2013
Rod Smith put this up on Facebook recently.
Lou Williams Is Going to Washington!
Life is all about hope, my Jules lived for three years on hope, I live
everyday on on hope for the future, not only for me, but for all those
In September 2012, 11 year mesothelioma sufferer,
social media stalwart, constant giver of support and encouragement to
all others adversely affected by the horror that is asbestos, not to
mention close friend of Jules and I, and now a kindred spirit of Karen
Elizabeth Banton and I, Lou Williams was told there was no more
treatment, in short, 'live life to the fullest, it is all about quality,
not quantity'. In tears, with fingers crossed, I said to Lou, " You are a survivor, we will go to Linda's ADAO conference in March!
Last week Lou said she was okay to go, I spoke to her wonderful husband Keith, he said, 'I would love Lou to go to Washington!"
So, Lou is now going to Washington with Karen Banton (keynote speaker)
and I (Karen's handbag), and fellow Bernie Banton Foundation Directors,
John Carter and Geoff Fary (speaker).
Lou is truly an inspiration to all sufferers of an asbestos related disease, and indeed to all people!
Thank you Linda for believing in hope and keeping a spot open for Lou....... Linda, you and ADAO make a difference!
Thank you from all at the Bernie Banton Foundation - Australia
