'I was shocked at having this strange disease'
Trish Doig believes she contracted a fatal lung cancer from living with her uncle who worked with asbestos.
When doctors diagnosed her mesothelioma they initially assumed she must have been in an industry that had handled the dangerous microscopic fibres.
Mrs Doig told the BBC: "I was shocked, I had never heard of this mesothelioma. Who had? So when they told me I had this strange disease and they couldn't really give me any prognosis because they didn't know anything about it - it was quite horrifying."
