Trussville parents say tainted water at Camp Lejeune, N.C., caused
childrens' brain cancer
Kent Faulk Birmingham News (AL) July 29, 2010A tainted water supply at the military base at Camp Lejeune, N.C., caused brain cancer in the two children of a Trussville couple, a federal lawsuit filed last week alleges.
Jennifer Edwards died in 2000 at the age of 14, just one day after she was hospitalized. Her brother, Lee, was diagnosed with a type of brain cancer in July 2009 and had to have surgery to remove a lesion, according to the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Birmingham by parents John and Connie Edwards. Lee's brain cancer is incurable, the lawsuit states.
...The lawsuit is among a half dozen filed in recent years against the U.S. government by former Marines or their families who lived on the base prior to or during the time the government noticed contamination and began taking steps to clean up the water supply.
