Obama Signs Medical Care Bill for Those Exposed at Camp Lejeune

Excerpt from: Obama Signs Lejeune Water Bill

President Barack Obama said at the White House ceremony “the country has a “moral and sacred duty” to care for those sickened by the contaminated drinking water.

Under the new law, those who served at or lived on Camp Lejeune at least 30 days between Jan. 1, 1957, and Dec. 31, 1987, will be able to receive medical care for cancer of the esophagus, lung, breast, bladder and kidney, as well as for leukemia, multiple myeloma, myleodysplasic syndromes, renal toxicity, hepatic steatosis, female infertility, miscarriage, scleroderma, neurobehavioral effects and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.”
