Clyde families want cancer cluster maps

CLYDE, Ohio (WTOL) - We have new information now about the Clyde childhood cancer cluster.

At least a couple of the families involved with the study say the Ohio Department of Health is refusing to release a detailed map of where the cancer cases have popped up.

The families said the Department of Health told them it can not release the information because of medical privacy issues involving the families in the study.

Some family representatives say that data is crucial for them to continue to research the cause of the cancer.
