Since 2006, R. B. Stuart has been outspoken on the plight of soldiers returning from Iraq & Afghanistan with Cancer -- her sister being one of them. By exposing a media blackout she’s been able to put a face on Cancer in the Military beginning in 2006 with a two-part feature in <em>The Independent </em>newspaper, “Troops in Iraq Face New Enemy….Cancer.” And Gary Baumgarten’s daily New York talk show, <em>Pal Talk</em> where she discussed Cancer, the military, media, and the hazards of depleted Uranium and burn pits. In 2007, Stuart wrote a feature for <em>The New York Sun</em>, “Veteran’s Rare Cancers Raise Fears of Toxic Battlefields” bringing the stories of five U. S. Army Soldiers stricken with Cancer post-Iraq to the forefront.<br /> <br /> R. B. Stuart is a New York author, freelance writer, columnist, poet and photographer.
