Camp Lejeune is a Marine base located in North Carolina that is been in use since 1942. From the 1950s to the 1980s, Camp Lejeune’s water supply was contaminated with two specific chemicals: Perchloroethylene (PCE) and Trichloroethylene (TCE). These chemicals are well-known to be extremely harmful to the human body and have been associated with various types of cancers, neurologic disorders, and birth defects. The cancers that have been linked to TCE and PCE exposure in drinking water at Camp Lejeune include:

  • Leukemia
  • Bladder cancer
  • Kidney cancer
  • Liver Cancer
  • Multiple myeloma
  • Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma

In addition to the various types of cancer, several health conditions have been linked to the exposure of PCE and TCE, including:

  • ALS (Lou Gerhig’s Disease)
  • Birth Defects and Injuries
  • Brain Damage
  • Cardiac Defect
  • Fatty Liver Disease
  • Hepatic Steatosis
  • Infertility
  • Miscarriage
  • Neurobehavioral Effects
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Plastic anemia (and other bone marrow conditions)
  • Renal Toxicity
  • Scleroderma
