My family and I the eldest of my parents four children lived in Richland from Feb. 1965 till Feb. 1970. My younger brother died from a very rare form of throat cancer and my daughter at 17 died of a very rare form of brain cancer which I believe I gave her through my genes or whatever. All my parents friends in Richland passed away young who worked at Hanford from throat, thyroid cancers and heart diseases. I support and love what you are doing. God bless you. Chuck Howley

I'm signing for someone I love whose life was destroyed and nearly lost due to living next to Hanford. The studies never accounted for second generation illnesses in the children of those exposed in the 60s and 70s. This person nearly died from an unusual childhood cancer less that a YEAR after the loss of a parent from thyroid cancer. The government NEVER counted he or his dead parent. The studies are an absolute fabrication. The United States should be deeply ashamed over the treatment of downwinders but we're not. In fact, we hired the SAME companies who created this toxic disaster zone to clean it up. Cha-ching!$$$$$$$$$$$

There will be a great potential for nuclear war in the world as long as the nuclear powers continue to represent the atomic bomb as a positive technology and a military triumph. We must turn this around and begin to commemorate the bomb as an atrocity of planetary scale.

I and my family are down winders. Iñ December I will have my thyroid aND part of my parathyroid removed. I have two sisters that have already had there's removed due to cancer a ND two other that have hashimotos. I had breastfeeding cancer lost 17 years ago a ND suffer from arthritis, hate hernia. They removed my uterus do to precancerous cells. Yet they tell me I was only exposed to 1 rad because of when I was born. I know it was more. When I was 8 yrs old my family visited the Seattle science center. They had an exhibit that said radiation was safe and that we all had some in us. At the exhibit they had a booth with Dixie Lee ray holding a Geiger counter and putting it up to people to show them that we all have radiation. I went to the booth it went to one person and went click click went to the next person click click wait to the next person click click went up to me and went click click click click click click click click click click click went to the next person click click she went back to me clique clique clique clique clique clique clique clique clique. I left I told my mother she went to the moon and it did the same thing to her. I know I was exposed but I have no proof I have a son who now has an autoimmune disease I have two nieces that now have thyroid disorders. I have cousins who had children born with birth defects I have cousins who have had small tumors on them I have an uncle who died from tumors. He lost his ranch due to deformed cattle and his cattle dying. My mother died at age 57 due to her blood being that her veins being small and a severe thyroid disorder. No tell me is radiation dangerous should we do something about it I think so.

this is obvious - no national nuclear weapons park could be complete without a full disclosure of the damage done and a commemoration of its victims.

Museums should promote facts, not legends. A responsible government should admit culpability.
