Camp Lejeune and Male Breast Cancer

Camp Lejeune and Male Breast Cancer

By SOP newswire2

Next week will be an important milestone in our struggle. On Thursday and Friday night (September 24th and 25th), CNN will air a two part story on the Campbell Brown show about Camp Lejeune at 8P.M. EST. The focus of the show will be on the discovery of 22 men who either lived, worked or served aboard Camp Lejeune and now share an unusual and rare commonality, male breast cancer.  
 
The existence of this rare cancer clusters belies the Marine Corps` latest attempt to kill the Camp Lejeune issue through the NRC report which was released last June. If their craftily structured report from the NRC is correct, then why have we found 22 men with breast cancer whose only commonality is that we all were exposed to the toxic drinking water while at Camp Lejeune?

We also know that male breast cancer is not the only rare cancer cluster we have seen at Camp Lejeune. This report will open a lot of eyes and generate questions that the Marine Corps does not wish to be asked. Our intent is not only to ask the questions, but to force them to provide honest answers! 
 
Please spread the word and get as many people as you can in front of the TV set next Thursday and Friday!
