Are there any `children` of Vietnam Veterans out there who have been diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma?!?!? i know that the pamphlets that are sent out each month say only spina bifida for a possible side effect in children, but if the vets can get NHL, why cant it be passed through their blood into their children? my dad is a vietnam vet and i had NHL, so i was just wondering if there are anymore out there like me.... thanks!!! ~jody

If you feel it is agent orange you and your father should contact the VA. my husband has and had Skin cancer melanoma and soft tissue sarcoma both are top of the agent orange list so talk to the VA you may be covered by them... check it out.... Jeane'

My husband was diagnosed with metatastic melanoma by th va in 2007 and denied benefits because it is not caused by agent orange (susposably). I am still fighting, if you have info that would help me to prove it is please let me know. barbydoll
