My first wife Patricia passed away from brest cancer (Ademia Carsinoma) at the age of 46 while living in the surrounding areas of Avoca, Pa. We lived there from 1969 until 1989 when she passed away.
My two daughter have Multiple Sclerosis and have reached the ages of 49 and 41, but have suffered for the last 15 years or so. When they where only one year old and 9 years old we lived in the surrounding areas of Avoca, Pa. They where really healthy as young children. At the time of about 20 years old they came down with Multiple Sclerosis and have suffered. No one in the family has this illness. I also worked in the factories in Avoca and Moosic, Pa. I also worked in construction in the surrounding area for many years. Contact me for further information if needed. My family lives in the surrounding area and told me about this class action lawsuit that I never heard about until this week. My first wife passed away in Zion Illinois at the Cancer treatment center and I met a wonderful woman that her husband passed away at the same Hospital and we met and I remarried this lady who's husband passed away at the same Hospital. I have had my share of heartaches.

I lived in Avoca , PA from 1975 - 1986 off of Main Street. I was never contacted about this Law suit and I have health related problems as does my sister. How do I get entered into this settlement?

I've lived in and around Avoca my entire life. I suffer from migraines everyday there's not one day that goes by that I don't have a migraine or some type of headache. I was diagnosed very young with asthma now that turned into COPD. I can't even breathe and it sucks. I need a breathing machine and three different inhalers to help me. please contact me if there's anything that you can do. Thank you so much
