Acreage Cancer Cluster: One Year Later and Very Few Answers

June 18, 2010 - Acreage residents Bill and Joyce Featherstone find comfort playing with their two dogs.

The pups remind them of the special, but limited time they had with their son, who loved the animals.

The beloved Joey died last September of a brain tumor.

"Instead of me sitting here and being confident, I'm sitting here thinking everyone is asleep at the wheel," Bill Featherstone said. "No one is paying attention."

13 Acreage families with children who had a pediatric brain tumor from 1994-2008 were studied. 11 of those tumors were malignant. There are also countless more reports of adult tumors.
