The CDC found the herbicide, Agent Orange , caused a number of diseases and cancers, but not all forms of cancers were put on the list, including the kind that killed Denny.

It’s the same for other forms of cancer as well, some are on the list as caused by Agent Orange, while others are not.

“Which kind of makes you wonder how do they arrive at that,” said Cloud.

“It’s frustrating. It’s maddening and I know there are plenty others out there,” said Janet.

You should apply if you believe your husband’s service and exposure to Agent Orange caused his cancer. You have to keep fighting and you very well could win.
