Military Families Wrestle with Marine Camp Water Contamination
Today, Antonett, now a wife and mother, has cancer — breast cancer, lymph cancer, brain cancer.
Brewster moved to Waterloo from Chicago to help Jonathan care for Antonett.
Dill himself was a Marine stationed at Camp Lejeune for a time.
Also disabled, Dill’s condition is being monitored due to exposure to the contaminated water.
Dill wants any veteran who served at Camp Lejeune for 30 days or more between 1953 and 1987 to contact his office at 291-2512.
Another issue is with dependents of veterans, like Antonett Cox.
She receives medical care but does not receive monthly compensation like her father.
Brewster was among the first to discover a connection between her daughter’s illness and Camp Lejeune.
She found information online about the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune.
Jones was diagnosed with bladder cancer in 2015.
