Paul Blanchard, 54, grew up in Windsor, Vt., and used to play on a field at a former Goodyear factory. He was diagnosed in 2005 with a rare form of terminal lymphoma and is now suing Goodyear and others associated with the site, claiming that his cancer was caused by exposure to a chemical- benzene -that the company had allegedly spilled into the field. He believes his terminal lymphoma is connected to his playing in the field as a boy.
