Thanks for the invite here! I guess I’ll lay out some of my info and hope to see some responses.
Camp Lejeune contaminated water vet, there in 1980. Diagnosed with intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma, June 2019. I filed the first Va claim in August which was denied because they didn’t have the actual radiolgy, diagnostic, etc. paperwork. OK…filed a supplemental and was denied because my cancer does not fall into the “liver cancer ” requirements!! I’m stage 4, terminal, so it looks like I’m a good candidate to just kick the can down the road..?? This is a basic statement of my condition as gallbladder is also affected. We, my VSO advocate are skipping right to a singular Judge, which can take up to a year!! Being terminal and having help from my Congresswoman will expedite but still being denied as not a liver cancer is outright wrong!!
