Bristol, Connecticut

Bristol, Connecticut, a suburban community located in Hartford County, is situated halfway between New York City and Boston. Now the ninth largest city in the state, Bristol was incorporated as a town in 1785 and later as a city in 1911. According to the Census Bureau, Bristol's estimated population of the city is just over 60,000. The Bristol community is active in the arts and sporting activities as well as in preserving its rich history of architecture, revolutionary clock making and general manufacturing. Bristol is primarily known today as home to ESPN, a 24 hour sport-related cable television network and Lake Compounce, America's oldest operating theme park.

Bristol’s industrial growth thrived during the 18th and 20th centuries. While the mills along the river played the essential role at the outset of Bristol’s industrial growth in the late 1700s and 1800s, it was the manufacturing and peddling of clocks that would provide the most significant impact. Sessions Clock Company and E. Ingraham & Company eventually became the two remaining clock companies operating in Bristol. E. Ingraham & Company produced more than 65 million pocket watches as well as 15 million wrist watches before it closed in the 1960s.

Bristol began renovating the downtown area in the late 1900s and the community has since experienced a revitalization. In 2010, Bristol was ranked 84th on Money Magazine's "Best Places to Live". Today, Bristol’s most notable companies are Bristol Hospital, CIGNA, ESPN and Otis Elevator.

Bristol has a rich industrial and manufacturing base where asbestos containing products were commonly used. If you or a loved one were exposed to asbestos in Bristol, you may be at risk to develop mesothelioma, a cancer caused by the inhalation of asbestos fibers.

The Importance of Grief Counseling for Mesothelioma Patients and Families

“Mesothelioma is a disease that comes with a grim outlook with only an average of 8% of patients who survive five years after their diagnosis. Because it has such a poor prognosis, a big part of treating mesothelioma – or any form of cancer, really – includes addressing mental impact it has on patients and their family members.”
