Subject: why Gulfcoast Kindra story terrifys me of our predicament in Arlington TX
Kindra Arnesen is a local hero in her vocalness about the BP harm done to her Gulfcoast home and the people…shes see’n the early deaths and how the fishing jobs were impacted (her family’s livelihood ) and now her mom is in the cancer fight…please all copied on this email help financially if you are able…I was blessed when my husband had cancer that we did not have to do a fund raiser. Here is Kindra’s crowdfund link if you feel blessed enough to donate … http://www.gofundme.com/7xlepk Below is her email string from last week.
I pray for protection from Barnett Shale urban drilling related cancers of our masses here.
Those more vulnerable are at…
those within 1/2 mile when there is low to no wind (as I’ve found at the UTA Air Monitoring site near their gaswells),
and for those at the fallout zone (link for Arlington vid).
Exposures may take take years before cancer symptoms appear.
I saved an email from Mr Hofmeister a retired Shell executive who told me not to wait for laws to protect my family (see my comment on this link to view that letter) – that fenceliners need to remove themselves from harms way.
The immediate shale related “irritation” symptoms have already appeared….. lung, eye, nasal, headache, stomach, itchiness, rashes ….I know first hand…I myself have some of those symptoms too. I have a discreetly taped audio of a worker at the Autozone that backs up to the Truman/Cowboy’s Stadium padsite telling me of health issues that have popped up going on a year now which is how long our drill site has been in production…this employee has been there 14 years and never had these issues before the drill site came in.. she is seeing a doctor now…but most aren’t trained in toxicology to be looking for and treating shale illnesses. I also have an audio of an Arlington doctor saying he was “terrified” of what the urban drilling could mean to our health….and I’m saving that secretly taped audio (I have many copies backed up on different internet databases) for the litigation that I’m sure “is” to come…..
Here is the Kindra cut and paste of select responses on FB…I boldfaced for a faster read….no apologies here for sharing the identities of her friends on this FB string as I did this to validate that these are real people and I can’t make this shit up.
2 more friends in the obituaries makes me sad. 46 & 50 is to young.
G B Same here ,Kindra ,almost weekly now. Sadness for all of us

Kindra Arnesen This place has exploded with cancer. I’ve lived here almost my entire life and I’ve never seen anything like this. I have come to the conclusion our immune systems have been compromised. People here are dying.
