Re: After Herceptin

Fire--No, Camp Lejuene has never been home for me. But I am aware of the cluster of cancers, particularly male breast cancer, that have occurred in the residents of the camp back in in the 1980's and earlier. The carcinogens found in the drinking water of that facility during those years lead many to believe that the cancers were caused by those pollutants. My breast cancer may have also been caused by ingestion of carcinogens, but they didn't come from Camp Lejuene. Thanks for asking---bird
