Agent Orange or contaminated water?

Last updated: February 2023

I was diagnosed in October 2020 with non-invasive bladder cancer. I’ve had 6 surgeries to remove tumors and have also had BCG treatment. We are not sure if it’s from Agent Orange or the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune. I’ve also lost a kidney due to cancer. I’m rated 100% permanent and total disability due to these cancers.
I’ll find out this month when the next cystoscopy is done if I’m clean or not.

This is my story.
