Less than a year ago the Cryer family lost their son Allen to cancer. At 9, he was diagnosed with a brain tumor and the family wonders if their water had anything to do with it. The father, George Cryer said, "They send out notices not to drink it if you're elderly, if you're sick or if you've got cancer. If you're just not perfectly healthy you shouldn't be drinking the water around here." For at least three years the family has received those notices. Their son's tumor was the first red flag, but at least two other cases of childhood cancer in this town of 650 are now raising concerns with most residents.
