Contaminated Water To Blame For Male Breast Cancer Cluster

I was talking to my dad the other day and he mentioned seeing a segment on CNN the night before about several men that all get breast cancer from drinking contaminated water while being stationed at Camp Lejeune between the 1960s and 1980s. Once I heard this I knew it was about Peter Devereaux, a man I interviewed about his cancer story while volunteering.

I was soooo soooo happy that Peter finally got the media to listen to their heart-wrenching story. Please take a moment to watch the CNN clip and read the story. I'm hoping this coverage of their story will get the Marine Corps to finally take blame for this and compensate these men that served their country.
