Vietnam Veterans Are Being Denied Benefits

Like many Vietnam Veterans, I am struggling with renal cell carcinoma, a type of kidney cancer. This is the result of exposure to Agent Orange.
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) offers disability and additional benefits when people who were exposed to Agent Orange get sick with anything that is on their list of presumptive diseases -- diseases they acknowledge are caused by Agent Orange. Despite a VA study showing a link between renal cell carcinoma and Agent Orange, my cancer is not on the list, and I was denied the financial help I need.
