MARION, Ohio - In the late 1990s in Marion, parents of students at River Valley schools questioned high cancer rates among the graduates.

The high school and middle school were built on a former army depot site where students could have been exposed to more than 75 hazardous contaminants.

The state health department did not dismiss the concerns but insisted that there was no direct evidence the chemicals caused the cancer.

Two of the families recently told 10TV about their journey since getting the devastating news more than a decade ago.
