A mom of three says she is used to hug her dad as a child and he was covered in asbestos. I believe this my father-in-law died of cancer he worked around asbestos and so did my grandfather. http://articles.news.aol.com/news/_a/woman-says-she-got-cancer-by-hugging/

I think it is possible that the woman developed cancer from the asbestos that she got from hugging her father covered with asbestos. I have heard that asbestos can cause cancer and so that is a great possibility.

Wow! That is so sad! In the article, it states that people diagnosed with this cancer normal survival rate after symptoms is 6 months to a year. I can see why she would be suing the company. She will be leaving her kids behind without a mother to care for them! Ouch!

the chronic exposure to asbestos will cause lung cancer, that is positive. except for the lung cancer caused by asbestos, asbestos still causes mesothelioma and asbestosis.

I read the newstory and it is very sad. I don't blame her for sueing the company. I wonder how many people have worked, went to school or lived in an apartment that had asbestos in it and didn't know. I know the old hospital here and buildings surrounding it, they can't do anything with them because of the asbestos.
