Who is Mavis Nye?
Mavis Nye was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 2009 and continues to raise awareness about the dangers of asbestos and mesothelioma.
Mavis was suddenly aware that her breathing was laboured during a short walk to the shop across the road. An urgent appointment with her GP was made and within hours she was admitted into hospital where seven litres of fluid were drained from her lung. After weeks of tests and biopsies, she was given the news that she had mesothelioma.
In 2017, Mavis set up her own charity, the Mavis Nye Foundation with the goal to:
1 – Provide relief of financial hardship by providing aid to those persons in the UK requiring assistance to access medical treatment, in particular experimental medical treatment.
