A Loss of Innocence: My Story

A Loss of Innocence: My Story

From USO Tour girl in Vietnam to cancer patient; Agent Orange strikes a cross section of people...

Now, back to where I started my story. One day in August of this year, as I was doing my surfing and enjoying a rather normal and pleasant day – my life was brought crashing down by the following words I found on the Veterans Administration website, “Liposarcoma is a presumptive disease the VA recognizes as being associated with Agent Orange and those presumed exposed to Agent Orange in Vietnam between 1962 and 1975 (including those who visited Vietnam even briefly).”

I sat stunned.
