Jimmy Camp LeJeune NC male breast cancer survivor
My name is Jimmy; I live in the Detroit area. I was diagnosed with invasive ductile carcinoma in my right breast in 1998 at age 52. In 2000 the cancer spread to my C spine and I broke my neck in two places. My doctor told me statistically I would have one to two years to live. I have learned to live every day like it was my last. My message to the polluters is… WE Matter. My life and my family’s life are worth more than your profits. My mission is to see they pay a high price for knowingly exposing us to known carcinogens and probably carcinogens. I still live and breathe our motto, Semper Fi (Always Faithful). It seems it stopped on your end when I left the main gate for the last time. The truth and your documents are on our side, and someday you’ll wonder… was it worth it? I’ve outlived my death sentence by almost a decade, and I’m not dying anything soon. I am on a mission.
