    I had cancer of the larynx due to 41 months exposure of AGENT ORANGE WHILE SERVING IN THE US ARMY. I started RADIATION TREATMENT May 2007 @ M D Anderson cancer center in Orlando Fl. July 2007, I broke out with a rash all over my head, neck and arms. Today (9/5/2012 after seeing over 20 ALLEGED DOCTORS and well over 150 meds, I have dry mouth, lost sense of smell and taste, all the hair has fallen from my arms, legs, chest and now hair grows on my nose, beside my nose and around my eyes. I have dry mouth, lost 10 teeth, lost the hearing in my right ear, had a TUMOR removed from the righ side of my chest, my finger nails are as soft as paper towels to cut it short, I now have rashes from the bottom of my feet to the top of my head and every inch in between, U name it. CAN YOU HELP ME?
