Mesothelioma Cancer in Libby, Montana - One woman's fight for justice
A recent news article in the Daily Inter Lake highlighted the ongoing plight of those with mesothelioma cancer in Libby, Montana.
The report focused on a long-time advocate of those with mesothelioma cancer and the string of funerals she attended of friends and colleagues in Libby who grew ill from asbestos cancer poisoning.
Reportedly, the tireless Libby advocate for justice and health was worn out, physically and mentally.
She had accomplished a lot, gotten people to listen, moved them to action. But she’d been at it since 1974 when her father died from asbestos disease.
Reportedly, he and her mother were among the more than 300 Libby residents who have succumbed to the razor-sharp asbestos fibers that slowly turn lungs useless.
That was when she started fighting W.R. Grace & Co., the corporation that operated the vermiculite mine from 1963 to 1990.
Many of the funerals she attended were for family members, including two relatives who died on the same day.
The sixth was for her right-hand man when it came to advocating for those with mesothelioma cancer in Libby.
Together, they hit back at Grace and every local, state and federal agency with the tough questions about why no one was watching all those years ago when the first reports of asbestos problems began surfacing.
