Tales of Cancer


I just read the article about cancer and City View ["Tomb With A View," January 10]. My mom also passed on from brain cancer about 6 years ago. We were all in shock, for she was such a strong woman. My stepdad also fought cancer for 7 years till his death. I was ill for a while, then finally went for a checkup and found I had cancer in my parathyroid and an abdominal tumor that ended up to be 7+ lbs. I'm now in remission. I was at City View to check it out when it first opened, and when i came home told my husband that it stank and it gave me a headache. I used to live behind Garfield Heights High School and remember the plane flying at night and wondering why. Does anyone know the radious of contamination from this site? Alie Valley View
