Mothers request medical monitoring for Pease PFC exposure

PORTSMOUTH — Several mothers whose children were exposed to contaminated water at the former Pease Air Force Base urged the Task Force on the Seacoast Pediatric Cancer Cluster to recommend ongoing medical monitoring in its final report.

Andrea Amico of Portsmouth, co-founder of the Testing For Pease community group and website, told the task force two of her three children and her husband were exposed to high levels of PFCs from a city-owned well at Pease International Tradeport.

“Medical monitoring is absolutely critical to our community,” Amico told the task force at its meeting Wednesday in City Hall. She noted her daughter, who just entered first grade, was exposed to the contaminants while at a day care at Pease. “I wonder how these chemicals are going to impact her body as she grows."

Amico maintained the failure by the state Department of Health and Human Services to recommend ongoing medical monitoring, which was outlined in the landmark C8 health studies, has meant some people who want additional tests for their children are being turned down by their pediatricians.
