Myelodysplastic syndromes or MDS are clonal disorders that are characterized by the same type of diagnosis, including:
- Ineffective Hematopoiesis
- Morphologic Dysplasia
- Developing Leukemia
Conditions such as myelodysplastic syndromes are pre-leukemia types of disorders, where a neoplastic cone is present, but not all of the cases of myelodysplastic syndromes will turn into an acute leukemia. Simply put, these disorders will prevent the healthy production of blood cells in the body, and acquiring this condition can lead to leukemia or other types of cancers. When this happens, the blood cells are not able to form properly, and it can cause cancerous diseases to attack the bones. The management of the disease may suggest a bone marrow transplant, to help preserve the person’s life, but this may not be able to be caught in time to be beneficial.
What Happened at Camp Lejeune That Was So Bad?
People who lived, worked and were stationed at the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, in Jacksonville, North Carolina were exposed to toxic chemicals in the 1950s up to mid-1980s. Many people became sick and were exposed to harmful chemicals in the water, such as:
- Trichloroethylene (TCE)
- Tetrachloroethylene (PCE)
- Vinyl chloride (VC) and benzene
The Camp Lejeune Justice Act allows anyone who lived or worked at the base from August 1, 1953, to December 31, 1987, for at least 30 days, exposed to the contaminated water and suffered injuries, to file a claim against the U.S. government.
If you were one of the people who visited, lived at or were stationed and worked at Camp Lejeune during the timeframes of toxic exposure, you have the opportunity to make a claim for your personal injuries. This includes being able to make a claim for myelodysplastic syndromes, if you were diagnosed with this condition and lived at Camp Lejeune in the past.
