Before the story airs: A cancer cluster in Wake County?
Posted April 26, 2013
As a reporter, I am naturally curious. I came across this story by chance, but then again, does anything really happen by chance?
Alex Harris is a young man who was diagnosed with a rare, life-threatening cancer. Through Make-A-Wish Foundation, Alex’s dream of going to the Super Bowl came true this year. I covered that story.
While speaking with his family, I learned some things that day that piqued my curiosity. Turns out, others living near Alex also had the same rare cancer. Coincidence? The families did not think so.
I knew right then I had to share this story. My intention is not to jump to conclusions or to invoke fear. As I began to seek answers, I continued to only have more questions.
Watch the story Monday at 5 p.m. and let me know what questions you have. Preview the story:
