Lady's Island resident Lee Pflug receives assistance from a nurse after a chemotherapy treatment at Beaufort Memorial Hospital's Keyserling Cancer Center. Pflug, a retired Marine, was diagnosed with preleukemia last year. Pflug was stationed at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina from 1960 to 1962, a time when the base's water was contaminated with dangerous chemicals. Though there's no conclusive evidence, some claim a link between their time at Lejeune and cancer developed later in life.
