A woman in Stonington, who developed mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos dust, is now 17 months free of the often deadly cancer, theday.com reported on September 26.
According to Lisa Rolfe, the likely cause of her cancer was second-hand exposure in childhood to asbestos from her father who worked with the hazardous material at his job. Rolfe sought out answers from doctors after suffering breathing problems. Soon after, an x-ray revealed three large tumors. Rolfe underwent chemotherapy and surgery in Boston to remove the cancerous tumors in her lungs. She now has been cancer-free for almost a year and a half.
