Hello- I saw your posting on the discussion board on auto-immune diseases.
I lived at TT#2 from 1959 to 1962 and Berkeley Manor form 1962-65. I was 8 to 14 years old and just
entering puberty when I was exposed to the toxins in the water at housing developments, schools , pools,
and other facilities where I spent 100% of my time during those years.
I had 4 bothers and 1 sister. The two youngest of them were born on base during these time periods.
My oldest brother died this past Dec. of heart problems and type I diabetes ( since the age of 28).
I have had at least 3 miscarriages, ovarian tumors and a radical hysterectomy. I also had
an unexplained stroke by the time I was 46 years old. I suffer from hypothyroidism . My son developed diabetes at age 11. My daughter has Graves disease.
My next youngest brother has had type I diabetes since he was 17 years old. He has had a heart attack and a stroke and he is not
yet 59 yrs. old.
My brother after him has type two diabetes and had fertility problems all his life.
My sister has been diagnosed with bi-polar disease and fibromyalgia as does her daughter since age 13 . Her 20 yr. old son is a type I diabetic.
My youngest brother was born with birth defects and is bi-polar and suffers severe depression.
My Mother worked at Lejeune as a civilian from 1956 to 1969 . She developed type I diabetes at the age of 28
after 3 years of working on base. She suffered from a myriad of aliments most of her adult life and died of a stroke
at the age of 61. She was convinced that there was a underlying condition that she suffered from that was going undiagnosed causing serious
problems with her central nervous system. She died before any of us became aware of the toxic water at Camp Lejeune.
My father, retired at 30 yrs. USMC is still alive, and a survivor of 2 bouts of cancer.
With my older brother passing , and with EVERY member of my family and their children suffering from mostly auto-immune
And central nervous disorders, I am convinced we have been poisoned by the water we were exposed to at Camp Lejeune.
Incidentally, there is no family history of the diseases mentioned above.
I have informed my primary physician that I lived at Lejeune during the years of 1959-65 at two of the housing projects found to have
contaminated wells. I am now in the process of going through every kind of diagnostic test imaginable especially for bladder, stomach and colon cancers. I would like to be able to network with others in the North Carolina area who have a similar experience so that we may share
information and help keep each other abreast of the events taking place regarding this subject.

I presently live in the Raleigh, NC area.
