“Melinda” (not a real person) was only 37 when, after more than two years of gradually but noticeably declining health, a physical exam by her family doctor revealed a small amount of blood in her urine. It was the first of what turned out to be a long series of unpleasant discoveries, not just for Melinda but for her family and her community – because she wasn’t the only one who had been suffering from mysterious illnesses.
People of all ages had been getting sick. So had pets. So had livestock on area farms. And after years of back-fence gossip and other neighborhood chatter, community leaders and local elected officials finally were starting to connect the dots.
It would turn out that the region’s largest employer, a manufacturer of some of the world’s most famous products, had been knowingly dumping a highly toxic chemical into the local watershed for generations. Now, the amount of the chemical in the local environment was reaching critical mass.
These revelations took place too late to help Melinda. A few weeks after her physical, she was diagnosed with kidney cancer. She has undergone several extensive, painful surgeries and other medical treatments and, even if she beats the cancer, she is looking at spending the rest of her life in some degree of discomfort and reduced functioning.
The company, which continued to deny the hazards of the chemical even after internal documentation of their cover-ups came to light in court, tried to blame Melinda’s cancer on just about anything else: her lifestyle, her hobbies, her genetics, to name a few. One of their attorneys suggested in court that she got cancer because she was overweight.
After evaluating the facts, her attorney was confident in a positive outcome to the case, but that could be years down the road. Melinda and her family needed help covering their living expenses right now. The attorney told Melinda to call USClaims.
