February 23, 2011 - A new independent survey claims hundreds of residential cancer cases in Frederick Maryland can be directly linked to Fort Detrick.
The study commissioned by the Kristen Renee Foundation surveyed an area within a 6-mile radius of the Army base. Of those tested, scientists found residents whose bodies contained toxins which matched the footprint of chemicals found in the soil, around the facility. It also found at lease one cancer case in all homes surveyed stretching back to the 1960s.

Randy White heads the foundation named for his daughter who lived near the base, and died of brain cancer at age 30. According to White:

"We have passed out another 30,000 surveys. So I'd say within the next month, we will be over 1,100 to 1,200 cancer victims easy within a 6-mile radius of Ft. Detrick."

Jenifer Peppe Hahn participated in the study. Hahn grew up just a quarter mile from the base, developed Hodgkins Lymphoma at 13 and is now battling breast cancer.

"I would like to see this not happen to my son. I would like to see the area cleaned up to a way that we feel save living in its backyard," she says.

A report released this month by the Army claims Agent Orange testing was limited to small confined areas within Ft. Detrick.
