The Bob Tolley Fund – Raising Awareness for the Cause

 Awareness of asbestos and asbestos related illnesses is unfortunately still much lower than we would like. I’m hoping to be able to make a difference – even if it has a small impact on just a few people’s lives – by campning and educating people about asbestos and its related topic areas.

I am by no means the only one with this cause – there are thousands of people out there, both online and offline, trying to make a difference to help make a better future for sufferes of asbestos related illness and also to minimise the number of people who are exposed to asbestos and risk developing life-threatening illnesses in the future.

One such group that has caught my eye recently is the Bob Tolley Fund – a charity set up after a father and husband sadly passed away as a result of mesothelioma in 2006. Their aim is similar to many campaigning in this area – to promote awareness and raise funds for mesothelioma and asbestos related diseases.

The fund organises fundraising events, such as BBQs, raffles and sponsored walks on a regular basis to help the cause. Mr Tolley’s family had never heard of mesothelioma when he was diagnosed with the disease, the disease was traced back work on gas conversions many years before his diagnosis. After discovering there was no government funding for asbestos related diseases – the group set up the Bob Tolley Fund to help raise money and awareness – with the eventual aim of a cure being found for mesothelioma and other diseases.

It’s groups like this that are helping make a difference. As more and more people begin to club together and set up funds such as this, as has been happening over the last few years, I hope to see our cause make real progress. If are a fan of our cause, please please do add me on Twitter to keep up to date with my news, reports and findings.
