According to Your Local Guardian, Alan Corkett - who is 75 years old - was diagnosed with mesothelioma in November last year and believes he came into contact with the material while working for electrical firm Mullard Radio Valve Co in Hackbridge.
Therefore, the grandfather has now urged any former co-workers to come forward and provide evidence to prove this assertion.
"I now can't enjoy walking or swimming like I used to ... I've always taken care of myself and being fit has always been very important but that has been taken away from me," he told the news source.
Mr Corkett went on to say he hopes his industrial disease claim will ensure his family is left financially-secure when he passes away.
