BBC Devon has reported that a special memorial has taken place in Plymouth for people affected by mesothelioma - a form of cancer usually caused by exposure to asbestos.
Mesothelioma is a complicated word for something rather serious and sometimes unknown by some.
Around 2,000 people are diagnosed with mesothelioma each year in the UK.
Vicitms aren't just workers who have been exposed to asbestos dust and fibres but sometimes even their family and friends can be concerned. For instance, the wife of one worker had mesothelioma too simply because she was washing her husband's overall and consequently very small particles flew in the air she was breathing.
"..."The theme for this year's Action Mesothelioma Day is a call for a worldwide ban on asbestos use..."
But where do all the claims and victims come from, you may ask?!
Well...many homes were built with asbestos as at the time is was thought to be a "great" insulation material.
The memorial is located at Saltram - anyone who has been or is affected by mesothelioma can bring a single-stemmed flower to place at the memorial tree.
