In recent news about the dangers of asbestos, a New Yorker is battling the healthcare system to get a lung transplant after being diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis from asbestos exposure.
After leaving his Brooklyn, New York home, the man who served in Vietnam from 1970 to 1971, moved to Oxnard in 1981 and got a job maintaining telecommunications equipment for a naval base. He worked there for nine years.
His life changed, however, in 2006 when he was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, a progressive scarring of the lungs commonly linked with asbestos exposure. Asbestos was a common construction material in the Navy from 1950 to 1970. It is still all around us and the risk of exposure still exists.
He worked as long as he could, but in April 2009 his doctor declared he had to stop.
