82 year-old Robert Carlson (cq) worked at Rocky Flats for 27 years. He suffered of colon cancer, and had 2 feet of his colon removed, as well as 2 feet of intestines, following a year-long treatment of chemotheraphy. He worked as an experimental operator while at the facility. Rocky Flats workers made their last plea for help before Radiation Board, to determine whether these former workers will receive compensation for their various forms of cancer, due to exposure to radioactive materials.
