How do I live with mesothelioma, asbestos related lung cancer, asbestosis or pleural thickening?

Given their impact on the lungs and other vital organs, asbestos-related illnesses aren't easy to live with. However, there are a number of extremely supportive organisations and charities that offer advice and support to everyone living with asbestos-related disease. They include:

The support these organisations and charities provide is invaluable.

How does asbestos-related illnesses affect your life?

Any diagnosis of cancer is distressing, for sufferers and their families. It can be a time of great fear and uncertainty. However, advice on living life to the fullest after a diagnosis is available from a number of organisations, including Mesothelioma UK.

In addition to specialist help and support for asbestos-related illnesses, you may need financial help to protect you and your family for the future. For that reason, you may wish to speak to a specialist solicitor to discuss the possibility of making a No Win No Fee compensation claim.

Other financial support for asbestos-related illness sufferers

There are a number of benefits and one-off payments available for those diagnosed with an asbestos-related illness. Visit our benefits and payments page which contains details of all the benefits and payments you may be entitled to if you've been diagnosed with an asbestos-related illness.

Of course, you may also be able to claim compensation from the negligent party for your or your loved one's pain and suffering.

How do I stop smoking after a asbestos-related illness diagnosis?

One of the most distressing aspects of asbestos-related illnesses is that sufferers feel breathless for much of the time. This situation can be made worse if you are a smoker; and being diagnosed with mesothelioma doesn't necessarily make it any easier to quit smoking. That's why the NHS provides an enormous amount of support to help asbestos-related illness sufferers to give up smoking as soon as possible.
