wondering if you can advise? I’m presently at 100% metastatic prostrate cancer, still going through treatment, which my last another 5 months. This was awarded as blue water agent orange. In the last week I have been diagnosed with kidney cancer and my kidney must be removed ASAP. This I’ve noticed is on the presumptive condition for water contamination while stationed at camp Lejeune. How do I do this in filing a claim, with one already being paid. American Legions here are closed most of the time so getting help from them is difficult. Thanks
SO SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR KIDNEY PEOBLEMS
AS FOR AS FILING A CLAIM, FILE THE 21-526 ez beings you were station at Camp Lejeune FILE AS A PRESUMPTIVE , YOU SHOULD HAVE MEDICAL RECORDS AS YOUR EVIDENCE, SEND IN YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS THAT PERTAIN TO THIS DIAGNOSE ,FILE THIS ON E BENEFITS BECAUSE THATS THE FASTEST WAY.
YOU MAY WANT TO CHECK WITH YOUR DAV OFFICE AT YOUR VAMC, THEY CAN FILE IT FOR YOU IF YOUR NOT SURE HOW TO FILE ON E BENEFITS, OR CHECK WITH YOUR VET CENTER TO REQUEST TO SEE A VSO AND HAVE THEM TO FILE IT FOR YOU
THERE SHOULD BE NO PROBLEMS TO FILE ON YOUR KIDNEY, UNLESS THEY COME BACK AND SAY IT IS INCLIDED IN YOUR RECENT CLAIM FOR THE METASTAIC CANCER? IF THEY CONCIDER THIS A SEPERATE CONDITON THAT WHAT YOU ALREADY BEEN RATED FOR AT 100% THIS SHOULD PROMT THE RATER TO INCLUDE THE Special Monthly Compensation (SMC) IF RATED OVER 60% WHICH IT SHOULD BE IF YOU HAVE YOUR KIDNEY REMOVED? i AM NOT SURE THIS WOULD BE CLASSED AS TEMP RATING AFTER YOUR SURGERY? OR BE MADE PERMANENT ?
OTHER MEMBERS CAN CHIME IN HERE I MAYBE LEAVEING SOMETHING OUT? BEING THIS WOULD BE A PRESUMTION CLAIM . THEY HAVE SPECIAL REGS FOR CAMP Lejeune Veterans.
