“There’s no place in St. John that has a safe level of chloroprene,” Bobby Taylor said.  “Man, that is frightening.”

Taylor formed the Concerned Citizens of St. John after seeing rare forms of cancer and other illnesses affecting his neighbors.

“This family right here lost the mother and the father and now the two sons are affected with the same cancer. This family lost people to cancer. Two of the people in that household lost people. I lost my mother and my brother, and my nephew, and my niece.”
