This template provides missile community members and their families an opportunity to explain their cancer diagnosis or toxic exposure experience related to ICBMs. These narratives will be helpful to other community members and organizations researching cancer associated with ICBMs.

We encourage you to share your story, the story of a friend, teammate, or family member. These narratives are being gathered by the Torchlight Initiative, a non-DoD affiliated, non-profit organization committed to the accountability and support of those affected by toxic exposures and other environmental factors. See Jason or Danny’s story for an example of the narrative provided.

The narratives may be provided to an investigating or academic organization for further research. 

In your own words, tell us who you are and the events that led you to a diagnosis.
If you are comfortable with us sharing your images on the site to accompany your narrative, please upload 2-3 photos you best feel represents you or your family member.
