Australia has one of the highest rates of mesothelioma in the world, with over 700 families devastated by this dreadful disease each year for which there is no cure.

The Asbestos Diseases Research Institute’s mission is to improve the diagnosis and treatment of asbestos-related diseases and at the same time contribute to more effective measures to prevent exposure to asbestos.

Other Ways of Supporting ADRI’s Ongoing Research

In Memoriam Donation / In Lieu of Flowers

Often, after the passing of a loved one, family members look for special ways to remember and honour the memory of their loved one. This can be done by arranging for family and friends to donate in memory of the person who has passed away.

A Memorial Donation to the Asbestos Diseases Research Foundation is a thoughtful way to remember someone, and at the same time help support research into asbestos-related diseases so that others may benefit in the future.

Any money donated to the Foundation in this way is recorded as a donation in memory of the deceased. Often the family may ask that any money that would normally have been spent on flowers for the funeral be directed to Asbestos Diseases Research Foundation. Of course donations in addition to this are welcomed and will also be recorded as a memorial donation. The next of kin are notified in writing of all those who have contributed.

An In Memoriam donation form or an In Memoriam card can be downloaded and returned to:

Asbestos Diseases Research Institute
PO Box 3628
Rhodes NSW 2138

Or you can phone us on 02 9767 9800 (8:30am - 4:30pm, Mon - Fri).

Alternatively, when making arrangements with the Funeral Director you can discuss your wishes for ‘In Memoriam’ Donations. The Funeral Director can then contact the Institute on +61 2 9767 9800 and we can supply ‘In Memoriam’ pre-paid envelopes for distribution at the service. Many families also like to mention these arrangements in the Funeral Notice that is placed in the newspaper so that those wishing to make a gift ‘in lieu of flowers’ can do so.
