Since 2006, R. B. Stuart has been outspoken on the plight of soldiers returning from Iraq & Afghanistan with Cancer -- her sister being one of them. By exposing a media blackout she’s been able to put a face on Cancer in the Military beginning in 2006 with a two-part feature in The Independent newspaper, “Troops in Iraq Face New Enemy….Cancer.” And Gary Baumgarten’s daily New York talk show, Pal Talk where she discussed Cancer, the military, media, and the hazards of depleted Uranium and burn pits. In 2007, Stuart wrote a feature for The New York Sun, “Veteran’s Rare Cancers Raise Fears of Toxic Battlefields” bringing the stories of five U. S. Army Soldiers stricken with Cancer post-Iraq to the forefront.
