Stacey and John Quartarone of Carlsbad, Calif., lost son Chase, 16, to non-Hodgkins lymphoma in December. A dying wish was for his parents to find out what caused his cancer. “He said, ‘Please don’t let anybody else get this,'” mom Stacey Quartarone said.The Quartarones are doing their best to honor their son’s wish. They’ve done their research and have discovered others in Carlsbad who said they have cancer or whose family members developed it. But what started as a quest to determine Chase’s cause of death led them to what they believe is a so-called cancer cluster around Kelly Elementary School, which their son had attended “There were at least 15 confirmed cases of cancer in the last 15 years,” Stacey Quartarone said. “We’re positive that at least eight teachers have had different types of cancer in the last 10 years.”
The Quartarones and others who believe something environmental is behind what they describe as an abnormally high number of cancer cases in Carlsbad pushed the school district earlier this year to perform soil testing.
They also have two of my favorite high power, high gain pulsed microwave radars within 10 miles of the school that refract and duct off the overhead atmosphere and authorities don’t have a clue where all of the radiation goes.
