Letter to the editor: Cancer problem

Editor:

This letter is to address the problem of cancer in Price. Maybe Mr. Matheson will take notice, but I have tried for 15 years to get someone to take notice of the problem, but no one seems to care.

I would really like for the government to check on the land from 300 East to 1100 East. This is where the houses were built for veterans. And if they took a look at how many people have had cancer from this area, they might fall off their chair.

I can go down the street where I grew up and there is at least one person from each house that has had or has cancer. Not only does cancer come up, but what about the number of birth defects in children from this area.

Please Mr. Matheson, take notice. We have lost enough people to this disease.
