The breath beneath your wings®
The ‘Bernie Banton website’ is intended as a reference source only. It is managed in an independent voluntary capacity as a community service. [Please note that it is not a support organisation and does not provide support or support services.]
The website is maintained to not only honor and foster the memory and legacy of Bernie Banton AM, but to allow every Australian to access comprehensive reference information about mesothelioma asbestos cancer, other asbestos related diseases, related supportive care, compensation and asbestos awareness. This website is not sponsored, or funded by any external sources, nor is subject to external private, government, union or commercial pressures – it is totally apolitical and autonomous.
This revised and rebuilt website is the successor to the Bernie Banton Foundation website. The Bernie Banton website, like its’ predecessor, is acknowledged as an extremely important reference point for sufferers of mesothelioma asbestos cancer and other asbestos related diseases, and for creating asbestos related awareness.
Whilst this website has been configured as being mobile phone friendly, due to the sheer amount of information it contains, it is suggested it be viewed and read using a computer or a tablet. Please give yourself time to fully read and digest every page that is applicable to your situation.
