Mavis Nye Foundation in association with Shield Environmental Services

I was married in 1960 and life was very normal as we lived through our working life and bringing up our family. We got to retirement and sold our house, moved to Seasalter near Whitstable and bought a larger motorhome, which we pointed to Spain and wild camped through France into Spain, staying outside our son and daughter-in-law''s villa, much to the amusement of the local residents. After 2 months we came home and my life went into turmoil. We hadn''t realised that the dust that Ray had come home with all those years ago as he worked around asbestos as a Shipwright was going to change our plans for retirement.
Finding out you have terminal illness is a devastating blow.

The story of living with Mesothelioma.

As an asbestos removal company, we know the health threats working with hazardous materials can cause. We’d like to promote Mavis Nye’s story, who after being diagnosed with mesothelioma, fought hard to find treatments. After 4 years, Mavis was offered Immunotherapy, becoming the first person to have complete response. After 8.5 years, the Mavis Nye Foundation is being launched. Funds raised will go towards research to help the future Mesowarrior.
