Cynthia Markley

I was a military wife at George AFB from 1984-1988. We lived on Montezuma Way in Adelanto and later on 10th Street in Victorville. I miscarried at 9 weeks in 1985 and gave birth to a stillborn daughter at 20 weeks in 1986. She was born with massive cystic hygromas on her neck. I wanted to bury my baby but was encouraged to donate her body to science by a Dr. Morton. I was advised to stop trying to have children. I was 19. In 1987, I gave birth to a healthy baby girl. That daughter died in 2012 of a mysterious undiagnosed heart condition. I have been diagnosed with lupus and have lost 20% of my hair. My husband has been treated for testicular cysts and chronic angina. I am furious. I am heartbroken. And we are actually some of the lucky ones.

I am not a doctor or attorney, and cannot give medical advice or legal advice.
