If you or a close family member were diagnosed with cancer and you live in eastern Sandusky County, health officials are asking for your help.

To participate in the cancer cluster study, you must have been: diagnosed with cancer since 1996, diagnosed with any type of cancer at age 19 or younger and lived in eastern Sandusky County at the time of diagnoses.

To be part of the study — which might help health officials determine the cause of the childhood cancer cluster that has stricken Clyde and eastern Sandusky County — call the Sandusky County Health Department's director of nursing Dawn Mason or director of environmental health Mary Dennis at 419-334-6377.
