A story about a toxic area near San Antonio.
>Robert Alvarado is a decades-long veteran of life in the so-called Toxic Triangle, the small fence-line community that bumps up against the now-shuttered Kelly Air Force Base. At 70, Alvarado struggles with kidney problems and is nearly blind from an aneurysm. Both his wife and daughter are fighting off thyroid cancer, while a cousin, once a worker at the base, lost his battle with liver cancer six years ago.
