Mavis Nye BCAh

Founder and Director of the Mavis Nye Foundation

Mavis Nye will speak of her five year fight with an invariably fatal asbestos cancer, mesothelioma, which usually claims its victims within a year of diagnosis. Having initially only been given three months to live, she set upon a difficult journey through four chemo regimes and two Phase I trials, only to be told no more treatment was available… to go home and make her affairs in order. That was not acceptable to her; she decided to widen her search and with success! Mesothelioma did not know what it took on, when it took on Mavis Nye. See
