Welcome

 

Kevin P. Kane lost his life in 1998 at the age of 26 to a rare cancer directly caused by chemicals released by The Nyanza Chemical Plant site in Ashland, MA.  Our hope is to honor Kevin by telling his story, sharing the impact he had on The Nyanza Superfund site and by making a positive impact in our community through The Kevin Kane Memorial Fund, Inc.

Kevin’s contact with our office was key to alerting us of a change in cancer patterns well in advance of the Ashland diagnosis being officially reported to the state. The world needs more people like Kevin Kane who press for answers to difficult questions, notably for the greater good.
