  1. At the age of 25 I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. I lived in Jacksonville N.C. and worked at Camp lejeune. There is class action suit going on down there because of many people with illness and birht defects that may be possibly caused from a dry cleaners spilling solvents in the waters. It is very disheartening and concerning. Can all this really happen up here because of a mine?
