ADFA Asbestos Diseases Foundation of Australia Business cards have arrived!

My ADFA Asbestos Diseases Foundation of Australia Inc business cards have arrived in the mail.   I am now officially ADFA's Social Media Voice and I'm very proud and honoured to be asked to take on this very important role and one that I am very passionate in getting the word out that there is no safe asbestos, asbestos kills.   Helping via Social Media to create awareness, support and advocacy is a very powerful tool in today's modern technology.

Asbestos Diseases Foundation of Australia (ADFA) is a not-for profit organisation working to provide support to people living with asbestos related diseases, family members, carers and friends. ADFA is a community based group founded by Trade Unions, victims, families of victims, and concerned citizens to meet the needs of people affected by asbestos related disease and has a long history of being engaged in advocacy work within the Australian community. http://www.adfa.org.au/

GBAN Global Ban Asbestos Network - my title - Australian National Director is also a very important role that I take seriously and am honoured to be part of this Worldwide Network in banning Asbestos totally.  Together in Unity!

Thursday I was able to spend time with someone newly diagnosed with mesothelioma and help them with their journey.

Weds we caught the train to outer Melbourne where we picked up my 'new' car .... well not officially a new car however a bigger one than the current car.   While going through chemotherapy I just feel claustrophobic in the smaller car and cannot get rid of that feeling.  So we now have the smaller car to sell - hopefully it will sell quickly.

Yesterday another quick train journey to Sunbury catching up with my sister for coffee/chat, then a train journey to Woodend to rejoin Keith and our friends from Tasmania who are staying in Melbourne for the weekend and to see a couple of games of Aussie rules football.  Great to catch up with them and they now are familiar with the Macedon Ranges!

Today is a cool and overcast day - Winter has truly set in here!
