A man from New Jersey has uncovered a mystery that links 100 people diagnosed with rare cancers to a Woodbridge high school.

Al Lupiano was just 27-years-old, when he was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor, called Acoustic.

The term “neuroma” refers to (AN). Lupiano’s wife and sister, who are now gone, were both diagnosed with uncommon kinds of brain cancer on the same day last summer.

He revealed in a Facebook post that he has been updating since March 7 that his wife was diagnosed with an abnormally large AN tumor and that his sister was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM), which has an occurrence rate of 30 individuals per million.

Lupiano said, “Their neurologist, who has been recognized as a global leader in neurosurgery by the World Federation of Neurological Societies, has treated and been involved with tens of thousands of brain tumors in his career. It is his belief my wife and I may be the first documented case of spouses having an AN, both roughly the same size and on the same side of the head…according to him, the odds are maybe 1 in a BILLION.”

He had heard from more than 100 attendees at the Colonia High School that they have been diagnosed with rare cancers.

He said in an update on social media, “I never in my worst nightmare envisioned ever hitting this milestone. That’s 100 people with their life forever changed. 100 families having to be told the terrible news. 100 stories of shock and disbelief with the diagnosis. I pray we find answers (as of 18:00 4/11, the list stands at 102 individuals).”

He told that there are people who worked in the school, they didn’t even live in Colonia.

The scientist noted that the ground of the school might be contaminated.

Lupiano also suggested a potential link between Colonia High School and a Middlesex, New Jersey, sampling plant in his interview.

The Middlesex sampling plant is located on 9.6 acres.

According to USACE, it “was an entry point for African uranium ores known as pitchblende” that were “imported for use in the nation’s early atomic energy program, were assayed at the Middlesex Sampling Plant and then shipped to other sites for processing.”

It received uranium, thorium, and beryllium ores, the year the high school was built.

It is precedented that soil was trucked to the school during its construction in 1967.
