Mozartplayer –

 

Thank you – I am a Vietnam Vet – served there 1971-1972 – diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid (myelogenous) Leukemia August 2020. My state Department of Veterans Affairs helped file my disability application with the VA and they are POA on my app. VA contacted me and requesting medical opinion as to connection of Agent Orange to my cancer’ I sure can use guidance and help from folks who have traveled this road before.

 

Any direction is really appreciated.  Bruce

You will need a strong IMO./IME- meaning an  independent medical opinion from a doctor, and the info they need to follow is in our IMO/IME forum here: at hadit.

 

There have been recent awards at the BVA for this disability:

 

“As such, the Board finds that the third criteria has been met, and that the Veteran’s diagnosis of CML was at least as likely as not caused by his exposure to toxic herbicides, as a result of his Vietnam service. 38 C.F.R. § 3.303.

 

 

 

Accordingly, the Veteran’s death due to CML is considered to have resulted from his exposure to toxic herbicides, which in turn carries a presumed association with the Veteran’s service in the Republic of Vietnam. 38 U.S.C. § 1310; 38 C.F.R. § 3.312.

 

 

 

Thus, entitlement to service connection for the cause of the Veteran’s death is granted. 38 C.F.R. § 3.102. The Board, having granted the Appellant’s claim on her first theory of entitlement to service connection, need not address her second theory of entitlement to service connection.

Thus, entitlement to service connection for the cause of the Veteran’s death is granted. 38 C.F.R. § 3.102. The Board, having granted the Appellant’s claim on her first theory of entitlement to service connection, need not address her second theory of entitlement to service connection.

 

 

 

In closing, the Board would be remiss if we did not express our sincere condolences to the Appellant, and our gratitude for the Veteran’s honorable service.”

The claimant above was the veteran’s widow .

 

I am an AO widow.

 

Also there might be past CML awards here in our AO forum.

 

This is the search feature you could use to find more cases like yours:

 

https://www.index.va.gov/search/va/bva_search.jsp?QT=CML&EW=Agent+Orange&AT=granted&ET=&RPP=10&DB=2020&DB=2019

You can expand the search date- I posted a link to our IMO/IME forum earlier and it is gone—-

If you Google Read First before Getting An IMO Berta hadit.com it will probably pop up-I have been having a hard time finding the forums- I think you were in the AO forum but that thread is all messed up.

You have a very good claim, but will need an IMO/IME and if]f you have a private oncologist, maybe they would write one for free or fr a small cost.

I posted some other recent  BVA awards to vets for AO CML  earlier today for you  but I guess they vanished—-

It pays to reply to this post hwre as the other thread is all messed up- AO is the most important veterans issue of my life and I do not want your posts lost in the mix- please reply to this topic I opened here ,instead of the other one.
