ASBESTOS DISEASES SOCIETY OF AUSTRALIA INC.
ECUMENICAL MEMORIAL SERVICE
The 2013 Ecumenical Memorial Service will be held at the Redemptorist Monastery 190 Vincent Street, North Perth on Friday 29th November, commencing at 9:30am (Please take note of the new time).
The purpose of the Memorial Service is to remember and pay respect to the many men and women from all walks of life that have tragically passed away as a consequence of exposure to asbestos and reflect upon the thousands of Australians who are presently experiencing pain and suffering from asbestos caused diseases.
This year’s theme is Faith and Hope. The power of faith can move mountains and we believe that is what drives the Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital medical scientists and doctors to find a cure to save lives. To remove the mountain of incurability of diseases like mesothelioma and lung cancer faith and hope are the essential elements.
It was always and still is our organisation’s motto “THERE IS NO MEDICINE LIKE HOPE” and therefore we strongly believe that a cure for mesothelioma and lung cancer will be eventually found but only when serious commitment has been made by both State and Federal Governments to fund the asbestos diseases medical research to save lives.
Your attendance to the Memorial Service at the Redemptorist Monastery in remembrance of the thousands of Australians who have sadly died from asbestos caused diseases will be greatly appreciated. Also join us to light a candle in memory of a loved one or friend.
There is no need for street parking as there is plenty of parking available in the Redemptorist Monastery grounds car park. For assistance with transport please
call our office on 9344 4077.
With deep respect I dedicate this website to the memory of all those unfortunate victims of asbestos-caused diseases, and their families.
Quoting a Kenyan proverb ...
"We do not inherit the earth from our parents, rather we borrow it from our children."
The principal aim of this website is to provide information on asbestos, its risk and to initiate programs to reduce the fourth wave of asbestos diseases which has already begun, and inevitably will become more insidious if exposure to asbestos in public and private buildings, schools and the environment is not abated.
