The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, "We just happened upon a news article covering the story of people dying in their hometown from mesothelioma due to a former asbestos factory.

The article referenced by the Mesothelioma Compensation Center is titled, “Rise in mesothelioma cancer cases reported near former Melbourne asbestos factory”. According to the article, "A rise in mesothelioma cases near a former asbestos factory in Melbourne's west has been reported by the Victorian Cancer Registry.

"In the 12 years to 2013, 16 people developed the disease within two kilometres of the Wunderlich site in Sunshine North. Mesothelioma is an aggressive asbestos-related cancer affecting the lungs and abdomen. Victorian Health Department spokesperson Bram Alexander said the increase was not unexpected. When you consider that this asbestos factory operated from back to the 40s and up until the early 80s, it's not unexpected to find occupational-related illness associated with people engaged in business with people in the factory."
