A high number of childhood cancer diagnoses in the Waycross, Georgia area has prompted some residents to ask if the community is the epicenter of a cancer cluster.

Within the span of two months in 2015, four children living in or near Waycross, GA were diagnosed with similar types of very rare and aggressive cancers. Three of the four have the very same cancer, and one little girl had a kind that’s even more rare. She recently lost her battle with the disease.

Their families and the community are still struggling to find out why and what, if anything, is being done to make sure other people don’t get sick.

We talk with Andy Miller, editor and CEO of Georgia Health News, and WebMD staff writer Brenda Goodman about their new four-part series updating the investigation into a possible cancer cluster in Waycross.
