Hi this is Val. I haven't posted many messages on the board but do read it a lot.
My husband Rand, 60 years old was diagnosed with CC in March of this year. He has been receiving chemo and the tumor, when the last CT scan was done, had shrunk. We haven't had a scan in several months but I have a feeling the cancer is growing.
The reason for the subject being chemicals is because I am just curious how many people out there with CC have worked with chemicals. Rand has been around airplanes his entire life and in the 70's worked as a mechanic at a airforce base. He worked with trichloroethylene, they used it to clean their tools and also would take off their shirts and dunk it in this stuff to clean the grease off and then put it back on while it was still wet, they even strayed it on the inside of the airplane to clean the grease and did not wear masks.
I don't know if this is what casued his cancer and don't want to go after any companies but would be interested in knowing if others have worked with chemicals or were around them.
